Description

Need to add a tab for configuration Access Point. This feature needs to request three items:
  1. SSID
  2. Password
  3. Channel

The rest of the configuration file (/etc/hostapd.conf) will look something like this:

interface=<ssid>
driver=nl80211
ssid=<ssid>
channel=<channel>
auth_algs=1
wpa=2
wpa_psk_file=/etc/hostapd-psk
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
rsn_pairwise=CCMP

Also create /etc/hostapd-psk with the contents:

00:00:00:00:00:00 <password>

Configuration based on
  1. Implement strong WiFi encryption the easy way with hostapd
  2. Hostapd : The Linux Way to create Virtual Wifi Access Point

Initial implementation of Access Point tab. Currently supports reading of /etc/hostapd.conf and hostapd-psk configured file to get the password and display it.

Added save support for hostapd. The Access Point tab support is now functionally complete but is still to be tested on the target.

  • Status changed from In Progress to Closed
  • % Done changed from 50 to 100

Tested on target. The interface configuration option was missing, but that's been fixed now and pushed upstream.

The UI is complete, but hostapd doesn't come up correctly. This issue can be closed and bugs against how it works will be opened separately.
