[Spam?] Re: FYI, I gave up on eap-tls for OS X and ios.

I have a self signed cert because [ I believe ] that is the test cert you
get when you install radius.
/etc/raddb/cert has a make, you run the make for test certs.

I have doc that suggests os x and ios will no longer allow self signed
certs, and it was suggested that I should have a self signed cert for free
Radiusd eap-tls.

The os x machines have no mods for a ³homebrewed² openssl?
I am testing against sierra and elcapitan, and I was also told I would
have to get special versions of openssl for os x at those levels because
of problems in opensslŠ
You have to implement homebrew openssl installŠ..

Will be interested in your feedback.
Any comment?
