wpa_supplicant for OS/2 - eCS is used by XWLAN / WLANSTAT for connecting to WPA secured networks

Building Instructions

  • checkout the complete tree via "svn co ​"
  • as a requirement you need:
    • libc065.dll (yum install xxxx)
    • ssl10.dll (yum install openssl-libs)
    • crypt010.dll (yum install openssl-libs)
    • z.dll (yum install zlib)
    • gcc446.dll (yum install xxxx)
    • gcc473.dll (yum install xxxx)
    • 32 bit TCP/IP stack
    • ???? tbd.
  • to build wpa_supplicant you need gcc. For 'wpa_supplicant2.2 (eCS-v1)' gcc v4.7.3 is used (yum install gcc). But other versions will work too.
  • tbd.
  • run make


  • 20180915 uploaded another testbuild. pmprintf.dll dependency removed. Now wpa_supplicant uses pmprintf when it finds the dll on your system. But it should run fine even if pmprintf.dll is not installed.
  • 20180910 new testbuild uploaded at bitbucket Based on official development tree from September 2018. Attention - this debug build needs pmprintf.dll somewhere in your libpath. Otherwise I think this build is pretty close to GA quality.
  • 20180429 there is a test build of wpa_supplicant based on latest v2.7 code here Beside a lot of other improvements this build includes the fix for KRACK. There is also included a QT frontend (wpa_gui.exe) which can be used as standalone frontend for wpa_supplicant. You can use it to connect to wireless networks without the need of xwlan/wlanstat. Useful for testing when you have problems setting up xwlan. wpa_gui does not set up the interfaces (starting dhcp client, resolving IP address conflicts, ...). But it can scan for surrounding networks and can establish a connection with even the most exotic security settings. Of course you need a wireless adapter which is supported by genmac.
  • version 2.2 (eCS-v1) added at xx.xx.2014
