[OLSR-users] Windows: does not route/nat

Hi Dianiel,

I might missunderstand your question, but to me it sounds like olsrd is 
doing just what
it is supposed to :-) The gateways set up in a OLSR routed network must 
be able to
act like gateways and OLSR is in no way responsible for setting up 
things like NAT on
gateways. OLSR adds default routes via nodes announcing Internet 
connectivity,
this is based on the assumption that theese nodes actually can route 
traffic to and from
Internet. Setting up a NAT enabled gateway is something you must do 
manually in your
case.

If you have set PC1 up as a NAT router, then there is probably a 
configuration problem
of some sort. Please report back if this is the case.
