Subject: Re: 802.1X tool?

Okay .. wait, maybe I didn't understand your question.

Windows XP (post sp1) can natively do 802.1x on both wired and wireless 
connections. Windows 2000 can do it if you get this :

You can push the 802.1x details out via GPO.

The wired instructions are similar.

If you're not in a domain model (ie: you're talking about a college 
resnet, etc) you're out of luck on the GPOs, but you can do it other 
ways (package your own script, .reg file, etc .. but telling people to 
click "ok" on a .reg file is a *bad* thing to do...

It gets a bit trickier if you're using client-side certs, more so if 
you're not using a Microsoft CA to issue them, but certainly not 
impossible (eg: you've got to import the root and client certs manually, 
not to mention getting OpenSSL/whatever to cough up ones that MS 
understands) ...
