Hi,

When I start hostapd it does not detach from the terminal. Is this 
normal behaviour, or should it fork giving me the terminal back. A 
couple of example command line I am using are below.


Simple command line:

[root at linux01 hostapd]# ./hostapd wlan0 

Using interface wlan0ap with hwaddr 00:80:c6:e3:5c:94 and ssid 'test'
Flushing old station entries


More complex command line:


[root at linux01 hostapd]# ./hostapd -x -S KEBAB -o 192.168.0.254 -a 
192.168.0.254 -p1645 -s secret wlan0
Using interface wlan0ap with hwaddr 00:80:c6:e3:5c:94 and ssid 'KEBAB'
Flushing old station entries


Thanks and best regards,
Ken
