Ubuntu 18.04 server (on a laptop, for development) and am trying to get my wifi configured to work with an
To enable Wifi I followed the guide Wifi on Ubuntu 18 server
I looked at the Netplan Examples (none with WPA-EAP )
I've read the Netplan Full Documentation.
I've got netplan to work with an an open network, even with a password protected network, but haven't been able to get it to work with
WPA-EAP where both an identity and password are required.
I've tried this in my
network: wifis: wlp1s0: dhcp4: yes access-points: "My-Enterprise-Network": auth: key-management: eap identity: johndoe1 password: pass1234
But when I run
netplan apply I get:
Error in network definition /etc/netplan/config.yaml: unknown key auth
From the Documentation
From the online netplan documentation:
The ``auth`` block supports the following properties: ``key-management`` (scalar) : The supported key management modes are ``none`` (no key management); ``psk`` (WPA with pre-shared key, common for home wifi); ``eap`` (WPA with EAP, common for enterprise wifi); and ``802.1x`` (used primarily for wired Ethernet connections). ``password`` (scalar) : The password string for EAP, or the pre-shared key for WPA-PSK. The following properties can be used if ``key-management`` is ``eap`` or ``802.1x``: ``method`` (scalar) : The EAP method to use. The supported EAP methods are ``tls`` (TLS), ``peap`` (Protected EAP), and ``ttls`` (Tunneled TLS). ``identity`` (scalar) : The identity to use for EAP.
access-points (mapping) This provides pre-configured connections to NetworkManager. Note that users can of course select other access points/SSIDs. The keys of the mapping are the SSIDs, and the values are mappings with the following supported properties: password (scalar) Enable WPA2 authentication and set the passphrase for it. If not given, the network is assumed to be open. **Other authentication modes are not currently supported.**
Note the last line:
Other authentication modes are not currently supported.
- What's the right way to use netplan with WPA-EAP?
- Does Ubuntu 18.04 ship with an outdated version of netplan? (
netplan --versionis not supported ) Hence perhaps why the online documentation has options that the
manversion does not?
- If so, can I upgrade netplan to a more cutting edge release?
- Or does netplan need to be used with something like a
wpa_supplicant.confto specify additional parameters?
