We can make it if someone familiar with wired 802.1x in regular linux tells us what should we do.

Sorry for a delay.

As far as I understand, we should prepare wpa_supplicant.conf and run wpa_supplicant as we do for Wi-Fi, but on Ethernet interface. Before asking DHCP or apply static IP to interface. Right?

Should we generate default wpa_supplicant.conf or always require user-provided wpa_supplicant.conf ? If we should generate default, please write it to me.

For Wi-Fi we use such minimal default wpa_supplicant.conf if user doesn't provide another :

Code: Select all

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
network={
    ssid="MYSSID"
    psk="passphrase"
}
With wpa_supplicant.conf prepared, we should run:

Code: Select all

/sbin/wpa_supplicant -B -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -i eth0
Right?

Hello, we used dhcp with guest vlan.
We can work with default suplicant.

Code: Select all

ap_scan=0
network={
              key_mgmt=IEEE8021X
              eap=MD5
              identity="login"
              password="password"
              }
Now is the question, why i can run /sbin/wpa_supplicant -B -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -i eth0, because a only have accces to shell before Wtware booting ???
