This package contains various utilities to manage the Apple AirPort base
Be aware that Apple released several versions of the AirPort base station;
the original AirPort ("Graphite") was a rebranded Lucent RG-1000 base
station, doing 802.11a/b. The AirPort Extreme ("Snow") is an Apple-built
802.11a/b/g base station.
For the original Apple AirPort and the Lucent RG-1000 base stations only:
- airport-config: base station configurator
- airport-linkmon: wireless link monitor, gives information on the wireless
link quality between the base station and the associated hosts
For the Apple AirPort Extreme base stations only:
- airport2-config: base station configurator
- airport2-portinspector: port maps monitor
- airport2-ipinspector: WAN interface monitoring utility
For all:
- airport-modem: modem control utility, displays modem state, starts/stops
modem connections, displays the approximate connection time (Extreme only)
- airport-hostmon: wireless hosts monitor, lists wireless hosts connected
to the base station (see airport2-portinspector for the Snow)

feel free to mail me. Packaging Java apps feels ... experimental :)
