Mini Wi-Fi LAN Possible

We have a new commercial application that I am curious if the Photon can pull off.
It would require 5 photons. One acting as the master (AP) and the rest as slaves (clients).
I need the master to get some sensor information and tell the slaves things to do via a TCP connection.

When the Photon is in AP mode can I create a TCP socket server for the clients to then connect to ?

Not yet, but there are plans to add this feature (no idea about max. client count tho’).
But this definetly (as for now) won’t happen before the Electron has hit the shelves and got to a “stable” stage.
