[Olsr-dev] What version of LINUX?

Hi Gregor,

Thanks for your advice. 

Yes, I have set "ad hoc" "SSID" "channel" "IP address" and its "netmask" on the 
LINUX machines. I believe that those are the common settings.

I also have make sure that when I did an "ifconfig", the interface is "UP" and 
when I did an "iwconfig", the wireless configuration is as what I had set.

However, even with the interface "UP" and the wireless setting correct, I still 
cannot PING another LINUX machine. This puzzles me.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

When asking for help on any mailing list you should provide information about 
what exactly you did already to try to get it to work. That helps others to give 
you advice. Anyway: you need to manually set essid (also bssid if your stations 
don't happen to automatically choose the same), channel, ip and netmask. You 
should be able to ping each other machine before trying to get olsr to work.
