ad hoc network
Authored by: tom larkin on Jan 22, '09 06:53:22AM
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.
I have used that binary in conjunction with /usr/sbin/networksetup in the past to configure some things on our Mac clients. however, I strongly suggest creating a symbolic link to the ariport binary as that path is very very long, ha ha.
