EAP question

Sorry for the confusion.  We have identified a problem in the EAP-TTLS
packet which had a non-standard code.   This isn't a FR problem, more of a
question as to how FR would handle a packet that had a bad EAP code in it.

  I have no idea what you mean by that.  OpenSSL doesn't do EAP.  And which
"EAP code" are you talking about?

  Please be specific.

  Even without that... if it works with FreeRADIUS, then there's no issue.
If it doesn't work, FreeRADIUS will produce an error message saying what
went wrong.

  It's more useful to post the error message than to ask confusing questions
about OpenSSL doing EAP.  That way there's no chance for confusion.
