How to restart hostapd correctly
Mon Dec 28 11:46:23 PST 2009
I am currently using hostapd-0.6.9 with prism 2.5 card. When I changed
the line 'wpa_pairwise=CCMP' to 'wpa_pairwise=CCMP TKIP' in the
hostapd.conf and then kill hostapd and start it again neither WPA/TKIP
nor WPA2/AES clients can connect. But if I reboot the whole PC all
clients can connect perfectly.
My question is, how to re-start hostapd daemon correctly so that it
reads the changed .conf file so that clients could connect after that
change without rebooting.
Best Regards, Jar
