Logical MAC Ports

Dear All,

The Intersil's Driver Programmers Manual mentions the concept of Logical MAC Ports in various sections.

These ports range from 0 to 6.  It is mentioned in a cryptic way that Port Number 0 is for Connection to BSS and Port number 1-6 are for AP functionality.  

The current HostAP Driver code enables port 0 for all communication (both transmission and reception).  Does it mean that ports 1-6 are to be used for Firmware based APs and not Hostbased APs?  Or still there is scope for using these ports when the AP is Host based?

Thanks & Regards,
