Hi Everyone,
I am newbie to linux and recently I try to implement  wireless connnection with EAP-TLS encryption. I am using Freeradius-1.1.7 installed into Red Hat Enterprise 4.
Here I encounter problems that I can't solve it alone hence I need advice guru from this forum.
the problem is client just can't get connected and keep request.
