[OLSR-users] Routes never added

Ok, more fuel-

I just compiled netcat for mipsel, scp'ed it out there, and did the following:

(spam-protected):~# ./netcat -u 698

from the .47 router.  Watching TCPdump on the .1 router, I got this:

(spam-protected):~# tcpdump -e -n -i eth1 -vv port 698 and host
tcpdump: listening on eth1, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 96 bytes
12:22:22.490165 00:13:10:42:b4:39 > 00:13:10:e9:c7:7e, ethertype IPv4 
(0x0800), length 52: IP (tos 0x0, ttl  64, id 39182, offset 0, flags [DF], 
length: 38) > [udp sum ok] UDP, length: 10

So, I know that I can get packets on port 698 UDP from .47 to .1.

But, when I tried this:

(spam-protected):~# ./netcat -u 698
./netcat: netcat.c: 573: main: Assertion `connect_sock.proto != 

I don't know if it's because netcat doesn't DO broadcast addresses, or if 
something is preventing UDP broadcast in the stack.

Now what?
