NAME

hostapd_cli – text-based frontend program for interacting with hostapd(8)

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS


hostapd_cli [commands]

DESCRIPTION

The hostapd_cli utility is a text-based frontend program for interacting with hostapd(8). It is used to query the current status.

The hostapd_cli utility can show the current authentication status, dot11 and dot1x MIBs, etc.

The hostapd_cli utility supports two modes: interactive and command line. Both modes share the same command set.

Interactive mode is started when hostapd_cli is executed without any parameters on the command line. Commands are then entered from the controlling terminal in response to the hostapd_cli prompt. In command line mode, the same commands are entered as command line arguments.

COMMANDS

The following commands may be supplied on the command line or at a prompt when operating interactively.
mib Report MIB variables (dot1x, dot11) for the current interface.
sta addr
  Report the MIB variables for the associated station with MAC address addr.
all_sta
  Report the MIB variables for all associated stations.
help Show usage help.
interface [ifname]
  Show available interfaces and/or set the current interface when multiple are available.
level debug_level
  Change the debugging level in hostapd(8). Larger numbers generate more messages.
license
