    Default Where are WIFI settings kept?

    Where can I find network settings in the directory tree? I looked through http://iphone.fiveforty.net/wiki/ind...dDirectoryList and checked out various promising sounding files, but none of them contained wireless SSID and other information.

    My goal is to change the dns settings of all wifi networks that I connect to to use openDNS - and to write a script that will change them in general.

    Thanks!

    Default

    I can answer my own question. Unfortunately, it's not quite as simple as I'd like.

    First, a whole lot of data (all?) is stored at /private/var/root/Library
    Network data is found in /private/var/root/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration

    com.apple.network.identification.plist is an xml file that has DNS information for each network you connect to, but does not contained the SSID, instead it has the BSSID.

    com.apple.wifi.plist has the SSID and a key

    preferences.plist has the SSID and more information

    I don't see where the SSID is matched up to the BSSID, though it's possible this is encoded in the key. Alternatively, the iPhone could only use the BSSID to store this information... the test to figure this out would be to change your SSID and see if your static IP settings remain untouched.
