[OLSR-users] Willingness not taken into account in route table

ho yeah, sorry... of course... It's a bit strange to forward flooding 
data though one node and trafic data through another one... but it's 
like that. Now I undestrand your "nexthop routing based on willingness 
on your to-do list" :)

So just to finish, is that normal that I can't use WILL_NEVER ? here's 
what I have:
debian:~# olsrd -ipc
 *** olsr.org - 0.4.9 ***
 Build date: Apr  6 2005
Parsing file: "/etc/olsrd.conf"
Willingness 0 is not allowed
Bad configuration!
thanks Andreas,
