LEAP vs EAP/TLS?

cnandreu asked:

I am given a choice between:

  • LEAP Wireless Client ID
  • 802.1x (EAP/TLS) Wireless Client ID (Digital Certificates)

To connect to a wireless network.

What are the differences? Which one would you recommend I use?

I have a Macbook Pro running OS X 10.8.1.

My answer:


You have to use EAP/TLS. LEAP support was apparently removed from OS X with Lion. Follow the directions given by your network administrator.
