NAME
     hostapd_cli -- text-based frontend program for interacting with hostapd(8)

SYNOPSIS
     hostapd_cli [commands]

DESCRIPTION
     The hostapd_cli utility is a text-based frontend program for interacting with hostapd(8).
     It is used to query the current status.

     The hostapd_cli utility can show the current authentication status, dot11 and dot1x MIBs,
     etc.

     The hostapd_cli utility supports two modes: interactive and command line.	Both modes share
     the same command set.

     Interactive mode is started when hostapd_cli is executed without any parameters on the com-
     mand line.  Commands are then entered from the controlling terminal in response to the
     hostapd_cli prompt.  In command line mode, the same commands are entered as command line
     arguments.

COMMANDS
     The following commands may be supplied on the command line or at a prompt when operating
     interactively.

     mib     Report MIB variables (dot1x, dot11) for the current interface.

     sta addr
	     Report the MIB variables for the associated station with MAC address addr.

     all_sta
	     Report the MIB variables for all associated stations.

     help    Show usage help.

     interface [ifname]
	     Show available interfaces and/or set the current interface when multiple are avail-
	     able.

     level debug_level
	     Change the debugging level in hostapd(8).	Larger numbers generate more messages.

     license
	     Display the full license for hostapd_cli.

     quit    Exit hostapd_cli.
