I'm building an IOT device, powered by headless Debain on a CHIP (https://getchip.com/), and will have connectivity to a customer's wifi. I'm trying to build in functionality for wifi connectivity to the customer's router in a way that wouldn't require the customer to ever need to input a password and username. Basically, I'd like to have WPS push-button functionality in Unix.
wpa_cli, and have been tinkering around with wpa_supplicant.conf. However I'm very confused. The example
.conf document located here , states that we'd need to input all the parameters of the router ahead of time. Why would that ever need to be the case? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of WPS (i.e. WPS should be blind to any access points and should handshake with the nearest router that has its WPS window open)?
