Are you asking about station scanning? These are usually done in kernel or the device (depends on the device and its capabilities). Have a look at cfg80211/mac80211 in the kernel to start with.

Subject: probe request / response wpa_supplicant

Which function sends a probe request from STA to AP and handles a probe response from AP to STA?

I searched the code, set break points but I didn?t find it.

There is no function called like ?handle_probe_resp? or ?gen_probe_req?. How are called these function because I want to extend the parsing for probe response on wpa_supplicant.
