This one have exactly same wpa_supplicant configuration that OP is using.

www.freebsdchina.org/forum/topic_26233.html

Because I'm not from China, I dont know is such wpa_supplicant configuration work at all on FreeBSD.
Maybe debug output from wpa_supplicant running on OpenBSD can shed more light on this subject.

Now I must switch between XP and openbsd.It's not convenient.
As I remember,its ouput is something like" IOCTL SIOC{ADD|DEL}MULTI fail : the protocol family is not supported."

I use openBSD for some years.But I never access the internet in openbsd box actually!

On OpenBSD wpa_supplicant file is not really a separate text file like on FreeBSD. You have to set up the interface which will use wpa from the command line or by editing /etc/hostname.interface file. You can also write a small script which can do that for you automatically after the boot process. The last method is convinient if you are using WPA on WiFi interfaces on multiple networks. Unlike FreeBSD paskey has to be in hexadecimal code

Read man pages for ifconfig to learn more. In particular since wpapsk must be in hexadecimal form read man pages for wpa-psk. That will explain you how to change regular word password into hexsadecimal code.

Cheers,
OKO

Thanks.

It's a pity!

#ifconfig em0 wpa
ifconfig: SIOCG80211WPAPARMS:Inappropriate ioctl for device

Look, wpa_supplicant should be one from OpenBSD 4.4 so that if somehow ABI&API breakage happen it could be ignored because you use fresh package builded for particular OpenBSD version.

Could some OpenBSD folks over there confirm that wpa_supplicant does not have mentioned ioctl error when using configuration file OP already mentioned?

Alternatively you could build wpa_supplicant from ports.

Also to make sure that such setup is indeed posibble you could test it within FreeBSD.

What do you mean? I can't understand.

Isn't the package built from the ports?

I can't confirm this method posibbly within FreeBSD.I haven't the environment.
PS:Today I install the 4.4 freshly,and install the wpa_supplicant in the 4.4's packages.

If there is still ioctl error displayed then something is wrong on OpenBSD side.
Did older OpenBSD have similar problems?

Older OpenBSD is like below:
Code:
ioctl[SIOC{ADD/DEL}MULTI]:Address family not supported by protocol family

Try to run tcpdump and to see if your machine actually send data for authentication.

I'm not familiar with the tcpdump utility. Do read the manual.

Just run tcpdump, and start wpa_supplicant in another terminal. After that you can post tcpdump output.
I just need to be sure that wpa_supplicant is actually working at all.
You could test same thing on FreeBSD (at least there exist positve information regarding wpa_supplicant + ruijie on that OS)

Runing tcpdump,there are a lots of arp&udp information.But no tcp.
I can't deal with this problem.Or the openbsd just don't support it.
I want to in the black box of openbsd.And back to XP.When I am graduating,I'll be back.
