Description

Hi,

as I was creating a WLAN for our company based on pfsense APs, I run into the problem, that pfsense has no option to enable dynamic vlan support of hostapd. What I needed was something like: https://dev.openwrt.org/ticket/15259 . In short i need this options:

dynamic_vlan=2
vlan_naming=1
vlan_tagged_interface=vr2

added to the /var/etc/hostapd_ath0xxxx.conf. However, this conf file is overwritten each time, the interface is adjusted.

Is it possible to add a freely configurable field where it is possible to add advanced options as it is existing for OpenVPN?

Or even better can you add options to the wireless interface configuration to enable dynamic vlan assginment?

  • Target version set to 2.5.0

Dynamic VLAN support is not compiled:

Configuration file: /var/etc/hostapd_rtwn0_wlan0.conf
Line 7: DEPRECATED: 'dump_file' configuration variable is not used anymore
Line 30: unknown configuration item 'vlan_tagged_interface'
1 errors found in configuration file '/var/etc/hostapd_rtwn0_wlan0.conf'
Failed to set up interface with /var/etc/hostapd_rtwn0_wlan0.conf
Failed to initialize interface

commented by default https://github.com/pfsense/FreeBSD-src/blob/devel-12/contrib/wpa/hostapd/defconfig:

# Enable support for fully dynamic VLANs. This enables hostapd to
# automatically create bridge and VLAN interfaces if necessary.
#CONFIG_FULL_DYNAMIC_VLAN=y

# Use netlink-based kernel API for VLAN operations instead of ioctl()
# Note: This requires libnl 3.1 or newer.
#CONFIG_VLAN_NETLINK=y

  • Target version changed from 2.5.0 to Future

I don't think it's something we want to pile onto 2.5.0 right now. We're starting to lock down what will be added at this point.
