I am just starting to use this driver.

Is "ap_bridge_packets" a configurable parameter or not, instead of compiling it into the driver?
If it is, how to config it?
If it not, how to make it as a configruable parameter out of the driver when the driver is running?

Because sometimes I want to forbid the communication between clients, only the communication between the clients and a single server is permitted. But sometimes I need the the clients and server communicate arbitrarily.

Thanks in advance
