CFG80211_IBSS(9) Actions and configuration STRUCT CFG80211_IBSS(9) NAME
struct_cfg80211_ibss_params - IBSS parameters SYNOPSIS
struct cfg80211_ibss_params { u8 * ssid; u8 * bssid; struct cfg80211_chan_def chandef; u8 * ie; u8 ssid_len; u8 ie_len; u16 beacon_interval; u32 basic_rates; bool channel_fixed; bool privacy; bool control_port; int mcast_rate[IEEE80211_NUM_BANDS]; }; MEMBERS
ssid The SSID, will always be non-null. bssid Fixed BSSID requested, maybe be NULL, if set do not search for IBSSs with a different BSSID. chandef defines the channel to use if no other IBSS to join can be found ie information element(s) to include in the beacon ssid_len The length of the SSID, will always be non-zero. ie_len length of that beacon_interval beacon interval to use basic_rates bitmap of basic rates to use when creating the IBSS channel_fixed The channel should be fixed -- do not search for IBSSs to join on other channels. privacy this is a protected network, keys will be configured after joining control_port whether user space controls IEEE 802.1X port, i.e., sets/clears NL80211_STA_FLAG_AUTHORIZED. If true, the driver is required to assume that the port is unauthorized until authorized by user space. Otherwise, port is marked authorized by default. mcast_rate[IEEE80211_NUM_BANDS] per-band multicast rate index + 1 (0: disabled) DESCRIPTION
This structure defines the IBSS parameters for the join_ibss method. AUTHOR
