Hello, All !
I use a hostap daemon for management functions. I have tried to insert delay in auth and assoc functions. A STA can normal does authentication and association with a delay less than 100.000 microseconds (90.000 microseconds is OK) and never with 100.000 microseconds or more. I need some time to make authentication using an access server. As I understood, a STA request auth and assoc in a loop, so that, I can do my authentication' subroutine on the first iteration, than cache it and this STA would get a reply on the second auth request.
I can develop a hostad as a client of the Radius server. Does anybody interesting in it ? Radius could tell 'framed ip address' in a reply. This p2p address (255.255.255.252) would be added on the hostap' interface for normal IP routing. All routers supports dynamic routing (OSPF for example).
IEEE 802.11 <---> Radius Authentication <---> Authentication Association <---> Authorization + Accouting start Deassociation <---> Accouting stop
P.S. I'am waiting for full implementation management functions in user level daemon and PCI support.
