Hi Alan et al,

Just a quick question – when eap_peap encounters a TLS error, is that available in the Module-Error-Message? i.e. let’s take this example:

(2) eap_peap: ERROR: TLS Alert write:fatal:handshake failure
tls: TLS_accept: Error in error
(2) eap_peap: ERROR: Failed in __FUNCTION__ (SSL_read): error:1417A0C1:SSL routines:tls_post_process_client_hello:no shared cipher
(2) eap_peap: ERROR: System call (I/O) error (-1)

Would the three ‘ERROR:’ messages be in &request:Module-Failure-Message (or &session-state: Module-Failure-Message)? I can’t particularly

With kind regards
