[Olsr-dev] SmartGW client side questions

Yes - of course. A question: do we need that tnl_$%abcd name for the 
smargw-client tunnel interface? I only expect one iface (because only one 
default-route-via-tunnel at a time").

A fixed name e.g. "olsr-smartgw" is more easily to handle, e.g. "iptables -A 
FORWARD -o olsr-smartgw -p tcp --tcp-flags SYN,RST SYN -j 
TCPMSS --clamp-mss-to-pmtu" sits in the firewall list and waits for the 
interface to be created. If we use a fixed name, I would omit the mentioned 
"background" job.

Shall we add this to the README-OLSR-Extensions file ?
