comitup-cli - command-line interface for comitup network management


$ `comitup-cli` State: HOTSPOT Connection: hotspot-1234 Points: 1: MyAccessPoint 2: HisAccessPoint Available Commands: (r)eload (q)uit connect to (<n>) command?:


The comitup-cli utility provides access to the comitup(8) D-Bus interface. It is intended to serve as a debug tool, and a source code example for connecting to the interface. If the comitup(8) service is not running, comitup-cli will immediately exit. Display: · State The comitup states are HOTSPOT, CONNECTING, and CONNECTED. In the HOTSPOT mode, comitup creates a wifi hotspot with the name comitup-<nnnn>, where <nnnn> is a persistent 4-digit number. Once in HOTSPOT mode, the system will occasionally (~1/min) cycle through available defined connections, by transitioning to the CONNECTING mode. The Access Point list is updated by this process. Any command issued by comitup-cli will cause the next timeout instance to be skipped. Once a connection is established, the system will be in the CONNECTED mode. If the connection is lost, failed, or deleted, the system will transition back to the HOTSPOT state. · Connection The ssid of the current active connection. · Points While in the HOTSPOT mode, comitup-cli will list the currently-visible access points, by ssid. Access points with the strongest signal are sorted to the top of the list. The entries are numbered, for use with the connect command. Commands: · r - Reload Refresh the displayed state, mode, and list of access points. · q - Quit Exit comitup.cli. · d - Delete connection Delete the configuration information for the current wifi connection. This will cause comitup to transition to the HOTSPOT mode. This command is not available in the HOTSPOT mode. · <n> - Connect to access point <n> Define a connection for the selected access point, and then attempt to connect. This command is only available in the HOTSPOT mode. · m - Manual connection Enter an SSID manually. · i - Get information Return the comitup version and host name for the current instance.
