Description (partial)


Some clients fail to authenticate using local auth. The EAP session
appears to complete successfully, but the client rejects the session after
receiving the EAP success.

The problem is the length field in the EAP success is set to 5 instead of 4. The EAP
success packet does not include the type field included in the header of other EAP packets.
Most clients ignore this, but some fail the session due to this difference.
