Hello all,

Here are several questions from me. Please give a hand.

1. What is the relationship between WPA supplication and Hostapd. Could Hostapd configure as a station without wpa supplication?

2. When configuring an AP with hostapd, if there is another ethernet interface beside the wireless interface, does the eth0 have its own IP address?

3. When changing the configuration of hostapd or WPA supplication, do I have to kill/stop the deamon, rebuild the configuration files, then start again? If I do the configuration in a process such as another C program, what a big task! Any example or script?

Thanks.
