My requirement is something like this...let me explain with small
piece of code.
2 - enable esecurity\n
3 - disable security\n
4 - edit config\n");
//after taking input from user - say 'choice'
// here i want to scan using wpa supplicant. and get result.
// user will enter inputs after seeing scan result and
then i will configure wpa_supplicant.conf as per users requirement.
// here i will enable supplicant. as below
system("./wpa_supplicant -c ./wpa_supplicant.conf");
//assume I will enable successfully with required command line
//if successfully enabled i will work here...say getting
//here i should disable to do that...
// I have to disassociate first.
// then i will kill wpa supplicant.
My code will look as above. I would like to understand following things here.
1. for scanning - I will modify wpa supplicant code to take command
line argument say '-s' which indicates enable wpa supplicant only to
scan. so I will enable wpa supplicant like this,
system("./wpa_supplicant -s -c ./dummy_wpa_supplicant.conf"). I
think using this I will get scan result. Let me know if there's any
better approach. My objective here is to get scan result and i should
fill this scan result in some structure.
2. For disable security. - First I will disassociate. problem here is
how i will get control on socket opened by wpa_supplicant, to
disassociate it? If I able to to that then...my problem is solved.
After this I will simply kill wpa supplicant.
I am not planning to use, wpa_cli.
