I would like to ask you if the Wing APs contain a supplicant for 802.1x authentication. Thanks.

Hello Peter,

could you elaborate on this a little?

Asking about AP authenticating to a bigger 802.1x structure or if WiNG openSSH contains supplicant libraries?

Long story short - both answers are "YES" but please state the use case.
VX# config
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
VX(config)# profile ap7532 default-ap7532
VX(config-profile-default-ap7532)# interface ge1
VX(config-profile-default-ap7532-if-ge1)# dot1x supplicant username aaa password aaapass 
Regards,
Ondrej

Ondrej, thanks for your quick answer.

I was looking for case - AP authenticating to a bigger 802.1x -
Do you know if it is possible to use a certificate (EAP-TLS) on supplicant site or another type of authentication with certificate?

Regards,

Peter,

for AP authentication I believe only PEAP is available

See WiNG 5.9 CLI guide, chapter 7.1.37.2.72 dot1x (supplicant)
