Ah. When I installed the port, I was reminded: | ... | ===> Registering installation for wpa_supplicant-2.6_2 | Installing wpa_supplicant-2.6_2... | To use the ports version of WPA Supplicant instead of the base, add: | | wpa_supplicant_program="/usr/local/sbin/wpa_supplicant" | | to /etc/rc.conf | | ===> SECURITY REPORT: | .... So I did that. I did not do anything to the existing /etc/rc.d/wpa_supplicant, which had been installed as part of base FreeBSD. > .... Peace, david -- David H.
