Default Difference between EAP-TTLS and PEAP?

Hi!

Does anyone knows the differnce between EAP-TTLS and PEAP in particular?
I mean, both are using EAP-TLS to establish a secure connection to
exchange authentication data and further using various EAP methods for
Client authentication. So where is the difference?

If nowbody has a idea, maybe you can recomend me another newsgroup :-)

thx walter

For a technical comparison see

(though I think the conclusion is out of date ie PEAP now seems to be more
widely implemented than EAP-TTLS).

thanks for the link, it was really helpful! But i'm still wondering,
that PEAP is more widely implemented than EAP-TTLS since EAP-TTLS has
the possibility to work with legacy systems which are not understanding EAP.

thx walter
