Thanks a lot Jar. I have now configured DHCP on wlan0, its working
fine. I also tried to check the two interfaces by sniffing the
packets. The DHCP packets are sent to wlan0 interface while the
association packets are sent to wlan0ap interface.
I want to test IAPP protocol implementation in hostapd, can you please
refer me to some case study for testbed setup in which IAPP is used I
am also documenting my whole experience installing HostAP and hostapd,
once i am done i will like to develop a how-to for new users like

Thanks a lot.
