#21382 new defect

Difficult WPA-enterprise config due to case sensitive string compares in

Keywords: hostapd Cc:


Today I spent quite some time connecting as a client to a WPA2 enterprise client. The problem was that the 'password' field was not present in the wpa_supplicant-wlanxx.conf file although I had specified it in the uci config file.

The reason lies in the file from the hostapd package. All the switches in this file are case-sensitive. Most online-examples specify 'TTLS' as 'eap_type', but the shell script looks for 'ttls' to add the 'password' field.

I would suggest to fix this by making the switches case-insensitive
