NAME

       xsupplicant — 802.1x supplicant (client)

SYNOPSIS

       xsupplicant [-W]  [-c config file]  [-i device]  [-d debug level]

DESCRIPTION

       IEEE 802.1x is a port based authentication protocol used to help secure
       wired and wireless networks by forcing computers to authenticate before
       obtaining  conectivity  and joining the network. xsupplicant provides a
       means for Linux machines to authenticate with  a  RADIUS  server  using
       802.1x and various EAP protocols.

OPTIONS

       xsupplicant’s command options are as follows:

       -c config file
                 Specify   an   alternate   configuration  file,  defaults  to
                 /etc/xsupplicant/xsupplicant.conf

       -i interface
                 Specify the network interface to use when  attempting  802.1x
                 authentication.  Defaults to all interfaces or to whatever is
                 dictated  by   the   allow_interfaces   and   deny_interfaces
                 directives of xusupplicant.conf

       -d debug level
                 Sets a debug level, causing extra debugging information to be
                 written to standard out. Defaults to 0, and can be set  to  a
                 maximum  of  7.  The  higher  the  value  the  more output is
                 produced.

       -f        Forces xsupplicant to  run  in  the  foreground  and  log  to
                 standard out, (useful for debugging).
