[Olsr-users] Why BMF is forwarding the multicast packetsas unicast?

I think your problem is different.
Does a ping to 184.108.40.206 work at all in your network? Just connect all
the nodes to one network, via an (Ethernet) hub or switch (without using
then ping 220.127.116.11 . You should receive a response from all the connected
If you do not receive a response from all connected nodes, then there is a
problem outside of OLSR-BMF. Perhaps firewall settings, blocking ICMP
