Does Freeradius support IAPP (802.11f)??

One should be aware that 802.11f has been deprecated by the IEEE.

To use it requires support in all your Access Points and the RADIUS

Windows IAS certainly does not support it.

Using the hostap only helps if you are using that software for your APs. 
And it says "minimal".  Exactly what that means should be discussed with
the maintainer(s) of that software.

I'm not aware of an availible implementation in commercial APs.  But I
would like to hear of any.

(not sure that further discussion really belongs on this list)

  Thank you for your help.  I have another question: 1) does the 
  radius server provided by windows 2003 support the IAPP  (802.11F)?
  if  yes, how to configure it? 2) Is IAPP function in hostapd able to
  work properly without further development? On 8/11/06, Alan DeKok <aland at>
