I have been looking for a solution to a vexing problem I am having with using Linux in China. The University I am teaching at makes it impossible for me to connect to the internet using Linux.
This is done by using an authentication client called, “Ruijie Supplicant.” The trouble is that this authentication client only works in windows.
The company that provides the authentication software claims that there is a Linux client. However, no one seems to be able to get it to work (with one exception). If you google Linux and Riujiie, you will find a spate of questions asked in 2008 about this problem. I was the one that posted those questions. As stated, one person said that he had gotten the Linux client working. However, I was not able to replicate his results.
This authentication software is used both by the campus network and by the local ISPs’. As such, it is not possible to connect a Linux computer to the internet. Are you aware of any work that has been done to develop a working Ruijie client for Linux?
