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
