Daemon EAPD using certman for certificate verification. Both certman
libraries and certman control panel applet are open source, so it
could be possible to add option to certman for accepting specific
certificate (even if expired/broken/etc...). And this could fix your
problem. But I do not know certman codebase...

I have found that there really is a problem with the certificates the work network uses, but unfortunately, the Admins won't hear it (because other devices can connect). On my FreeRadius network, now the UI connects properly everytime, after I had generated proper self-signed certificates. In any case, I am starting to think EAPD is not doing anything wrong per se. Only thing missing is an option to skip certificate verification. Pity this can't be hacked in somewhere. GConf would have been the perfect place for such tweak.

>> Thanks for your help Pali. I can get wpa_supplicant to run, and it authenticates successfully now. However, it keeps re-authenticating, even though it has already been properly accepted. I guess this is an unrelated problem though.
