access point


In SUSE9.0 there is supposed to be the capability to make an access point using the hostap module. I do not see any options for this in any configuration utility. Anyone know of the procedure, or if tinkering with the configuration files is necessary, what lines and where?


Joe DeLee

Thanks in Advance!!!

when using hostap, you have to ifconfig wlan0 (or whatever you wireless card is) and iwconfig wlan0 mode master. Assing IP address to who needs then if not usin dhcp. Also set in your sysctl.conf file do a net.ipv4.ip_forward=1. Sometimes you will need to enter this command
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE
