If you put the ascii string in the wpa_supplicant.conf file then
wpa_supplicant will do the work of wpa_passphrase and you don't need it.
If you want wpa_passphrase for pre-caculating the PSK, then the code is
in contrib/wpa_supplicant and you can build it yourself. Another person
requested it be hooked to the build and it's on my TODO list but hasn't
PS. If you really meant wpa_psasword then I don't know what it is;
please provide a pointer.
Sorry, I did mean wpa_passphrase. When I put the ascii password for PSK and run wpa_supplicant -i ndis0 -c /ets/wpa_supplicant.conf I am getting a kernal trap error and a subsequent forced reboot.
