NAME

       wicd-wired-settings.conf - controls Wicd’s wireless network settings

DESCRIPTION

       This file contains configuration information for wireless interfaces in
       Wicd.
       This file is located at /etc/wicd/wireless-settings.conf

SETTINGS

       bssid = <BSSID_of_network>
              This value can be found using iwconfig(8).

       essid = <ESSID_of_network>
              This value can be found using iwconfig(8).

       hidden = <True|False>
              This option notes whether the network’s ESSID  is  broadcast  or
              not.

       channel = <integer_value>
              Valid channels are dependent upon country.
              This value can be found using iwconfig(8).

       mode = <Master|Ad-hoc>
              This value can be found using iwconfig(8).

       enctype = <encryption_template>
              This  can  take  the  value  of any encryption template shown in
              /etc/wicd/encryption/templates/.

       encryption_method = WEP|WPA|WPA2>
              This value can be found using iwconfig(8).

       key = <plain_text_key>
              Be sure this file is readable only by root.

       automatic = <True|False>
              This option determines whether Wicd should automatically connect
              to this network.

       ip = <None|ip_address>
              Use this option if you have a static ip address for your system.

       netmask = <None|networkmask>
              This setting is only appropriate  if  a  static  ip  address  is
              configured above.

       broadcast = <None|broadcast_address>
              This  setting  is  only  appropriate  if  a static ip address is
              configured above.

       gateway = <None|gateway_address>
              This setting is only appropriate  if  a  static  ip  address  is
              configured above.

       use_static_dns = <True|False>
              True = use static DNS servers instead of accepting what the dhcp
              server supplies.

       use_global_dns = <True|False>
              True = use the global  DNS  servers  provided  in  wicd-manager-
              settings.conf(5).
              This option is only appropriate if "use_static_dns = True"

       dns1 = <None|ip_address>
              Static    DNS   address   if   "use_static_dns   =   True"   and
              "use_global_dns = False"

       dns2 = <None|ip_address>
              Static   DNS   address   if   "use_static_dns   =   True"    and
              "use_global_dns = False"

       dns3 = <None|ip_address>
              Static    DNS   address   if   "use_static_dns   =   True"   and
              "use_global_dns = False"

       use_settings_globally = <0|1>
              Wicd keeps track of whether to autoconnect to networks based  on
              bssid.   This  ensures  that  you  don’t accidentally connect to
              another network that is not yours but happens to have  the  same
              essid  -  for  example, there are a lot of commercial routers in
              use with "linksys" as the essid.
              0 = Do not use settings globally
              1 = Use settings globally

       has_profile = <True|False>
              This parameter is used internally by Wicd and has no  effect  as
              far as the user is concerned.

       beforescript = <None|arbitrary_script>
              This  defines  a  script  to  run  before  Wicd  brings  up  the
              connection.
              IMPORTANT - scripts should ONLY be writable by root  and  should
              be located in a directory that is writable by only root.

       afterscript = <None|arbitrary_script>
              This   defines  a  script  to  run  after  Wicd  brings  up  the
              connection.
              IMPORTANT - scripts should ONLY be writable by root and  located
              in a directory that is writable by only root.

       predisconnectscript = <None|arbitrary_script>
              This  defines  a  script  to  run  before  Wicd  disconnects the
              interface.

       postdisconnectscript = <None|arbitrary_script>
              This  defines  a  script  to  run  after  Wicd  disconnects  the
              interface.
              IMPORTANT  - scripts should ONLY be writable by root and located
              in a directory that is writable by only root.

OTHER

       The  "use_settings_globally"  option  determines  how   an   individual
       network’s  configuration  stanza  starts.  If the option is "0" (do not
       use settings globally), then the stanza’s top line will be the bssid of
       the access point (in this format):
       [00:15:3E:87:D3:68]
       If  the  "option  is set to "1" (use settings globally), then the first
       line of the stanza will be in this format:
       [essid:UA Public Wireless Network]
