Wi-Fi configuration (wpa_pps)

PPS interface for Wi-Fi configuration


wpa_pps [-A addr:port] [-c file] 
[-D library] [-d] [-h path]
-i iface [iface1 [iface2]...] 
[-j ap_iface] [-P script]
[-p path] [-r sec] [-S script] [-s] &   

Runs on:

QNX Neutrino


-A addr:port
Proxy to publish when proxy authentication is required.
-c file
Specify configuration file (default: /etc/wpa_pps.conf).
-D library
Specify and load a library with direct access to the driver.
Enable debug messages (to stdout).
-h path
Specify the path and name of the binary to execute when configured for Access Point. For example: -h /usr/sbin/hostapd_ti18xx.
-i iface [iface1 [iface2]...]
Specify the Wi-Fi interface to use. This must be the last argument on the command line. Note that you can specify an optional prioritized list of interfaces (e.g., for multi-homed operation, preference of default routes, etc.).
-j ap_iface
Specify the AP (access-point) interface to use.
-P script
Specify the script to run for updating proxy settings.
-p path
Specify the path for the wpa_supplicant control interface (e.g., /var/run/wpa_supplicant).
-r sec
Specify the number of seconds between updates of the connected network's RSSI (default: 10). To never do any updates, specify -1.
-S script
Specify the script to run for updating the RSSI.
Run in simulation mode; that is, run without a Wi-Fi.


The wpa_pps service provides an interface for configuring WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) connections. For more information about QNX support for networking, see "Networking Architecture" in the System Architecture Guide.

For more information about the configuration changes wpa_pps can make, see the relevant PPS object descriptions:


The wpa_pps service uses the /etc/wpa_pps.conf configuration file. To configure WPA behavior, edit the parameters in this plain-text file.
