setting up wireless trying to execute this .conf script to connect using WPA
I typed as per these directions in vi but I need to run the file now, cmod 0755 works for .sh files what do I use for .conf files?
"On a Linux client, install wpa_supplicant and create a configuration file, wpa_supplicant.conf (in Debian, installed in /etc/wpa_supplicant/) like the following:
Again replace the parts in italics to match your setup and run wpa_supplicant -i eth1 -D wext -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf (replacing eth1 with your wlan interface name and wext with the appropriate driver for your card; run wpa_supplicant without any options for more information). This command starts wpa_supplicant in the foreground and tries to connect to the WAP"
I need to (1) run this as a .conf file and (2) use the proper syntax to execute this script.
Hi DavidLee1A, Welcome to LQ. You don't run the conf file, you run wpa_supplicant with the options per the instructions and wpa_supplicant should read from the conf file. When you run the following you are telling wpa_supplicant where the conf file lives.
Good luck. ;-)
