OK, I did it, but maybe I am doing something wrong, because
authentication always fails, even though the credentials are OK (Aegis
2.1 connects just fine). Do I have to do something to the NIC before or
after the action?
1) you must 'ifconfig iface up' before run the wpa_supplicant
2) try removing the "eap=MD5" line in the "network=" block, or set the
EAP to what the authenticator is using
3) try using -dd wpa_supplicant command line option to make it print
verbose debug message, and figure out what is happening :-)
