Netstart / Required Reboots on Interface Changes
I've been taking my laptop around and accessing a wide array of access points. My method of switching interfaces has been something like so:
> cp /etc/hostname.rum0 /etc/hostname.rum0.home > vi /etc/hostname.rum0 #adding in the new connection information > sudo sh /etc/netstart rum0
However, when I restart my machine, it connects right away.
In reading netstart(8), it says that netstart is invoked after after single user mode is exited / during system boot. I looked at /etc/rc, and it simply does a ". /etc/netstart" (however, it does look like it does a /usr/sbin/dhcpd as well, and I haven't tested running that as well).
Any ideas before I start digging in deeper? I'd like to be able to run a simple user inputted ksh script when I travel around to:
1. Find access points
2. Connect to (x) access point
3. Prompt and enter credentials
4. Backup existing access points
I don't think something like that exists yet as far as I can tell.
