    Default wpa_supplicant help

    Hi,all I am trying to set up my network I am with suse11.1 x64bits. The problem is there the uni network goes under proxy(Aberystwyth uni by the way), so there is a way to connect, but it is for ubuntu.

    this are the instructions: How do I set up my computer for use in halls? (Linux)

    I make them but I think this commands:
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp
    wpa-driver wired
    wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
    must be different for suse, because displays me errors reading them, so can you help me to set up this connection. At the moment I am running Ubuntu, but I want SUSE.

    Thanks :0

    Belay that, just recognised this is for a wired and not a wireless connection.

    As NNTP users won't see edited posts, here my idea on how to solve that.

    There is no proxy, the wired connection is WPA-protected.

    Maybe you can achieve this via "PRE_UP_SCRIPT" in the ifcfg-eth0 file.

    See "man ifcfg" for more information.

    so you say that this code in the files is same for Suse? Nothing to change in it?

    No, I don't.

    Your code _won't_ work under openSUSE, but you can put any custom script into the ifcfg-files and get this executed.

    Read the manual page for ifcfg and for wpa_supplicant.

    No, I can't, even if I wanted to, because I have no sufficient information about your setup.

    The only thing I can give you are the exact commands to get the manual pages.

    man ifcfg
    man wpa_supplicant
    and especially for wpa_supplicant read the file

    which contains a comprehensive explanation on how to configure wpa_supplicant.

    As long as I don't see any indication, that you at least try to inform yourself by reading manual pages or other documentation you were pointed to, I also don't see any reason to give you any further advise, but maybe someone else will do.
