How to connect to Enterprise Wifi?

Post by BSDELL » Wed Apr 03, 2019 7:32 pm

The network menu only allows me to access wifi with passkey encryptions, how do I connect to Enterprise Wifi that requires user name, password, tunneled tls authentication, and pap inner authentication?

What is the contents of your file /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf?
https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/ne ... eless.html
Section 5 WPA_SUPPLICANT.CONF information
https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?que ... ease-ports

Section 8 WPA_SUPPLICANT Command
https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?que ... ease-ports


Manually issue the wpa_supplicant with the background Dameon option and dhclient commands

Code: Select all

wpa_supplicant -B -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf 
dhclient wlan0
Use the following line for testing with the Debug and Password debug printout options

Code: Select all

wpa_supplicant -d -K -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf 
dhclient wlan0
Problems running dhclient? Then kill the previously running dhclient.

Code: Select all

killall dhclient
dhclient wlan0
#Sometimes you might need to restart the network interfaces and the routing services, after editing the /etc/rc.conf file or the /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf file.

Code: Select all

service netif restart  && service routing restart
Good Luck, report back what works for you. Document your progress so others can apply what you learned.

@wb7odyfred "service netif restart" is a FreeBSD command not GhostBSD command, GhostBSD command its "service network restart".
