[Olsr-dev] configuration for static ethernet links between nodes

I want to mount three or four OLSR-nodes with sectors antennas on a big 
building to extend an OLSR network. The nodes are interconnected through 
a simple ethernet switch. Perhaps later on also endusers are accessing 
the olsr network through this switch.

I can use a /29 private subnet for the switched network to prevent 
enlarging the routing tables. Or is it better to use /32 addresses for 
the ethernet interfaces like it's typical in olsr networks?

Another question is, if it is necessary that the ethernet interfaces 
send each other regularly HELLO messages because the switched ethernet 
network is static at all. But I think it's also no problem if they do.

Does someone have a typical olsr configuration file for such a setup or 
any hints or internet links for me?

Thanks in advance for your help!
