hi all,

I am currently working on project that involves implementing a roaming
feature between 2 access points.  So far, my team has configured 2
linux boxes to work as Access points (using hostAP).  Our next task is
to configure roaming between these 2 machines.  We would like to do it
on the Access points rather than on the clients.  Basically, we need
the session data to be transferred only between these two APs. We also
need some mechanism that automatically changes the WEP keys when
switching from one AP to the other.  However, we would like to get
anything working first (keep WEP keys the same).
I noticed that hostAP has some roaming support, but I found the
documentation to be very vague and not detailed enough.  It also seems
that it provides support for the roaming on the client side, which is
not what I am looking for.  Please tell me if I am wrong!!!  I am
fairly new to the world of linux and wireless comm., so I am looking
for some help with this.  If anybody knows how to go about doing this,
please let me know.
