Require Admin rights to create Ad Hoc network
Authored by: mauricev on Jan 21, '09 03:41:18PM

Is there a command-line mechanism to create an ad hoc network in the first place? It almost sounds like this command itself could do it, but there are no switches mentioned in the man page and it doesn't complain with any hints if I pass bogus ones.

Require Admin rights to create Ad Hoc network

I found it. What I'm looking for is the Linux equivalent of the iwconfig command.

The command is
/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/airport

and the --help switch reveals that --ibss= switch should work to create an adhoc network.
