hostapd & wired network ?

im using the following network with hostapd on the authenticator :

Authentication server <---wired---> Authenticator(hostapd<----wired--->
User (win XP with WinRadius)
1.100 -------- 1.200 , 0.13 ----- 0.12

and this is my configurations for hostapd :






there is a problem : the EAPOL_start is sent to the authenticator by
the user (win XP) but the authenticator doesn't reply to user. and also the radius messages transmit between server and authenticator. what is
the solution ? please help me
another question is : can hostapd used in a wired network at all ?

thanks a lot ...

hostapd [-hdBKtv] [-P <PID file>] <configuration file(s)> DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the hostapd daemon. hostapd is a user space daemon for access point and authentication servers. It implements IEEE 802.11 access point management, IEEE 802.1X/WPA/WPA2/EAP Authenticators and RADIUS authentication server. The current version supports Linux (Host AP, madwifi, mac80211-based drivers) and FreeBSD (net80211). hostapd is designed to be a "daemon" program that runs in the background and acts as the backend component controlling authentication. hostapd supports separate frontend programs and an example text-based frontend, hostapd_cli, is included with hostapd. OPTIONS

For a complete description, run hostapd from the command line. -h Show usage. -d Show more debug messages. -dd Show even more debug messages. -B Run daemon in the background. -P <PID file> Path to PID file. -K Include key data in debug messages. -t Include timestamps in some debug messages. -v Show hostapd version.
