AirPort software base station?
Authored by: Jaharmi on Oct 26, '02 07:28:59AM

I've got the same thing started, based on the work I did customizing the StartupItem for IPNetShareX under 10.1.x.

However, the new Internet Sharing service in Jaguar is of particular interest to me, because it seems to simulate a hardware wireless access point. In other words, it seems to start up the software base station in "infrastructure mode" rather than "ad hoc mode."

This makes all the difference to me, because infrastructure mode works with my PowerBook, and ad hoc mode does not. I've got a Cisco Aironet 350 card, and while its drivers support computer to computer wireless connections, they never seem to find my tower G4 in that mode.

Does anyone know how to completely start up the Internet Sharing feature of Jaguar? There is an InternetSharing executable, but I'm not sure if I'm supposed to use it:

/usr/libexec/InternetSharing

Every time I turn on Internet Sharing from System Prefs, it overwrites a bunch of my firewall rules ...
