Hi Jblackston,

 

 

We are advancing on our research, and I will give you an update of this:

 

 

Right now, we know how to set the Joule as an access point, but it is not assigning IP's and we are still looking into it.

 

 

The steps that you most follow are:

 

 

1. Run the command: connmanctl

 

 

2. In the command line of connmactl write:

 

connmanctl> tether wifi on  connmanctl> disable wifi connmanctl> enable wifi

 

 

3. After that you should have the hotspot but it is not assigning IP's.

 

 

We hope you find this useful, and we hope to reply you soon with more information about it.

 

 

Thank you for your patience.

 

 

Regards,

If I wanted this to happen every time I boot up will this be persistant, or what commands do I throw into the service to run upon boot up?

Hi Jblackston,

 

 

If you want to set this permanent, you need to make sure you have following entry:

 

 

cat /etc/connman/main.conf

 

 

[General] PersistentTetheringMode = true

 

 

With this you will set the AP mode after every reboot.

 

 

About the IP's issues, we're still working on this we will let you know when we have updates of it.

 

 

I appreciate your patience.

When running the connmanctl command I initially get this error:

Error getting VPN connections: The name net.connman.vpn was not provided by any

Also when I run the commands you provided for the AP mode it didn't seem to do anything. I ran the commands and then with my laptop I checked to see if I can see the SID to connect to and it never showed up.

Also I do not have a directory at 'etc/connman/' on my Joule module so I'm not sure exactly where I'm support to look for in making this setting change.

Hi Jblackston,

 

 

We really appreciate your patience, we'd like to inform you that we're planning on introducing the feature to enable the Intel Joule as an access point in a future release. Although the timing and exact scope of the feature would be subject to change, we hope to have it available soon.

 

 

Have a nice day.

 

 

Regards,
