If i have multiple VAPs(Access Points) created,
Each VAP will have separate ESSID etc.... and i want to maintain each of
them as a separate connection.

Do i have to run multiple instance of Hostapd for each of the VAP?

While reading on the net, i found that we need not have multiple instance
but we can obtain this witha  single instance , by giving the diff
configuration files while running hostapd. (

How do we give different configuration files while running hostapd?

I read in the below,

That  with *set* *hostap* *interface* you can set the diff interfaces u want
to run hostapd on? so i assume i have to sepcify here all the vaps i want
the hostapd to run on...

But how to i create and run differnet configuration files for each interface
in hostapd??

Please help!
