airport sharing, too?
Authored by: blatherskyte on Oct 28, '02 04:54:36PM

can this be augmented in a way that will autoshare as an airport base station? I ask before I begin dredging through the terminal.

Well, that should work. Haven't checked where InternetSharing stores it's settings but if you've checked Share Airport Connection or whatever it says, in System Prefs it should work.

Hey just do some testing and tell us all what you find, so we all know what to do
if we ever want to autoshare via AirPort.

Set up software base station first, yes

If you set up your AirPort software base station settings to your liking first, then any time you run the InternetSharing application, you'll get those same settings.

You don't need to put InternetSharing in its own StartupItem; I've had it in my custom firewall config file for several weeks. (I start all the other sharing features there, but found that InternetSharing enabled a software base station that seems to run in infrastructure rather than ad hoc mode -- it makes all the difference when I'm connecting via my Cisco Aironet 350 card on a Lombard PowerBook.)
