Hello, I'm a college student learning hostapd.
My question may be stupid but it really confused me.
To be brief, my question is similiar to this thread:
I would like to know that, is it possible to get the information of a
packet(length/size/payload data) in hostapd just like we did in Wireshark?
I used a Laptop running hostapd, with wired Internet connection eth0 and
wireless interface wlan2. And I used a android phone to connect to the
Internet via hostapd running on the laptop.
I supposed that the packets sent from the phone to the Internet should go
through the following path.
Phone WiFi interface -> wlan2 of laptop -> Hostapd running on laptop ->
eth0 of laptop -> The Internet
Is this correct?
If so, could we intercept the packets during the process?
What file should I modify in order to achieve it?
I've been tracing the source code for several days. Starting with eloop.c
,functions/files which registered with the callback function. Then libln
and driver_nl80211.c. But couldn't find the answer.
I'm sorry for my poor English.
Any hint would be appreciated. Thanks you very much.
