links on the fly.

After your experiment is swapped in, the above settings (including the
accesspoint) can be changed on the fly, using either the
<tt>link_config</tt> script on <tt>users.emulab.net</tt>, or with the
XMLRPC interface. For example, if you want to change the accesspoint
of a lan, first determine the MAC address (dotted or undotted notation
is fine) of the interface you want to be the accesspoint, and then use
link_config:
<code><pre>
link_config myproj myexp lan0 accesspoint=00:09:5B:94:26:AF
</code></pre>
Or you can use the <a href=../xmlrpcapi.php3>XMLRPC interface</a> from
your desktop or from <tt>users</tt>.
<code><pre>
sshxmlrpc_client.py link_config proj=myproj exp=myexp
link=lan0 "params={'accesspoint': '00:09:5B:94:26:AF'}"
</code></pre>
