FreeRADIUS with EAP/TLS authenticating Windows XP Clients - slow authentication

Discussion in 'Linux Networking' started by Stephan Bolten, Aug 25, 2004.

  1. Hi!

    To secure my WLAN, I installed a FreeRADIUS Server and configured it as
    described in this HOWTO:
    http://www.impossiblereflex.com/8021x/eap-tls-HOWTO.htm
    Now it _does_ work, but the authentication seems to be _very_ slow. The
    authentications runs for about 30 seconds, before it ist finished and I can
    access the Network. It doesn't seem to be a CPU-performance problem, because
    both the Linux-server which runs RADIUS, and the XP Client are running in
    idle-state for most of the time, while authenticating the user.
    The WLAN-AP is a SMC Barricade 2804WBR, the NB uses the Centrino-WLAN
    Chipset.
    Any ideas what could be the cause? Or ist this slow authentication "normal"?

    regards,
    Stephan
