Now that I'm adding more and more hardware to the mix, idea popped in my mind that it would be convienent to be able to "script" configs.
Did a google, but didn't find anything that was exactly what I was thinkiing.
(Let me try to explain how I'm thinking this would work.)
It wouldn't neccessarily have to be a program geared towards any particular hardware, but a program that runs "scripts" for accessing web sites, automating data entry, etc. My googles mainly turned up all the trash out there available for spammers to automate generating free web based email accounts. Obviously, I'm not interested in any of that "bastardware". :^)
Since all my wireless hardware can be configured with a web browser (over local LAN, not on outside) -- what popped in my mind was a program that could "record web interactivity" and generate a "script" off of such activity. I.e., you would turn the "recorder" on, go to all your web-based configs, and do your intended configurations. After making your "recording", you would be able to use the "recorder program" to tell the "script" which parts of the "recording" were text entry fields. Afterwards, you could put a table/database(s) together that allows you to have different text entries. Afterwards, to re-config your entire network to a specifc configuration, it would be a simple "one-click" process. Perhaps the "scripts" could even be automated to run automatically under certain conditions (i.e., time, day, etc) to do virtually limitless number of re-configs. (I..e, say, new WEP keys entered in for everything every couple of weeks or whatever. For the really paranoid, the table/database used to hold your keys would be encrypted itself, so your keys aren't stored as plain ASCII text. Or, perhaps, during certain hours of the day you could have an SSID open to public automatically and then closed automatically at another time of day.)
Examples of the keys and open/closed networks were just examples of one thing to do. With such software, you could really do anything. I was thinking of simple "web based" recorder/player scripter since it would offer tremendous flexibility.
Anything out there like this, or am I nuts? :^)
