"trigger" required when a host joins the WLAN or leaves (newbie)
Scenario: I hv laptop clinet with DLink WLAN card and it is talking to the AP. Another server machine is connected to the AP (wired or WLAN).
I somehow configure the the laptop for "WLAN Open System Authentication" with AP.
What I want: I want an application running on my laptop (and another application on the server m/c ) to get a "trigger" that "Laptop has successfully joined the WLAN" after the Authetication is successful. I would be interested in a similar trigger that "Laptop has gone out of the WLAN network".
Why I want: My goal is to send certain messages from the clinet to server the moment it joins the WLAN n/w (after successful authentication) and stop sending when the laptop moves out of range.
Both my laptop and server machine have Redhat 9.0.
Any help or pointers welcome...
