Wifi Direct – Galaxy S6 – Dot1x

My best practices rutines, says “Not-Allowed” for WiFi Direct Clients… but with a footnote that this might be causing issues on some mobile phones.. Well today I had an inssue.
My brand new Galaxy S6 would not connect to my Dot1X enabled network, using WPA2-PSK everything was working..(it had Wifi-Direct disabled on this ssid..)

Using debug client, I found out that it was failing on WDS.

Turning Wi-Fi Direct Clients Policy to either Disabled or Allowed, fixed my connection problems!
