Thanks for the note. i restored the values of RADIUS_CLIENT_FIRST_WAIT andRADIUS_CLIENT_MAX_ENTRIES to their original values. 

But, changing RADIUS_CLIENT_MAX_RETRIES from 10  to 0 or any value does not make any difference. It still sends access-request 10 times.

I am doing make eapol_test followed by
cp eapol_test /usr/local/bin/

I wrote to hostap at lists.shmoo.com, but no response. thanks for your time.

Why did you change RADIUS_CLIENT_FIRST_WAIT and
RADIUS_CLIENT_MAX_ENTRIES values in addition to just the maximum
retries count?


This breaks the RADIUS client code since you do not leave any room for
storing pending entries.


If you have questions related to eapol_test implementation or details,
the hostap mailing list would be better target for them..
