[OLSR-users] BSSID in Freifunk running OLSR

Yes. I actually just figured it out and am ashamed to admit the problem. I
have clients running on both wireless machines but somehow the firewall for
Client1 was set to not accept pings. I'm not sure if some installation of
antivirus software did that, or what, because I had never done so. I found
out the problem because I turned off the firewall and it worked so I went in
and adjusted the settings to allow pings and turned the firewall back on.
Everything works great. Thanks.

Are you sure both wireless machines are running olsrd?
