Thank you Rob, for a quicker response.

But in the below mentioned link cisco says that PEAP is not compactable with MAC machines.


Q. What client operating systems support PEAP?

A. PEAP support is available on Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows CE. Visit the Cisco Aironet WLAN client software product bulletin Web page for the latest software information and guidelines to enable PEAP on a client machine.

and the respective link:

Hi Srihari,

I think that this must be an older document.

For PEAP support you must have at least Mac OS X 10.3 or higher

Operating systems and wireless adapters known to work with 802.1X

Operating systems with 802.1X (PEAP/LEAP) support

Microsoft Windows:

Windows 2000

Windows XP


Mac OS X(10)

Operating systems without 802.1X (PEAP/LEAP) support

Microsoft Windows:

Windows 95

Windows 98

Windows ME

Windows NT


Mac OS 8.0

Mac OS 7.0

From this doc;

Hope this helps!
