Curiosity got me looking online for what this might be and, other than Vampire hits, I was not able to find any description of what this is.

Anybody know?  Not that I need to know what it is... just more of curiosity thing and that I like to understand as many commands and settings as possible...

Thanks!

Are these 1532s by chance? By guess and its only a guess is this has something to do with carrier sense.

Well if they are 1532's then

Well if they are 1532's then they can't take a WSSI model, so this command should do nothing.

If this bothers you, you can open a TAC case and ask the TAC engr to file a bug to have this command removed or hidden.

Cheers,

No really an issue, just more

Not really an issue, just more of a curiosity and I knew this would be the best place to ask.

No big deal... thanks for everybody's help and input though!

What type of AP and what code

What type of AP and what code version are you running?

 

I took a look at my 1142 running 12.4-25.JA2 and I don't see the nosferatu command

"nosferatu" was the code name

"nosferatu" was the code name for the WSSI module.  Guess this is some detritus from the development work.
