Sorry, I don't understand ? On latest current:
man wpa_supplicant has no '-a'
& There is no word `active` in man wpa_supplicant.conf
I see with default scan_ssid=0 FreeBSD sends a broadcast Probe Request frame.
If some network blocks within a wpa_supplicant.conf have
then does FreeBSD actively sequence through sending
directed Probe Request frames with known net names ?
Or are you refering to
or some other command ?
