[Olsr-users] multicast routing

With no running OLSR deamon (and no BMF), what is the response to the 'ping' command?

If the response is something like "Network is unreachable", manually add a
default route, e.g. by
issueing 'route add default gw'. Try again to 'ping'. You should then
get at least your own node responding, e.g.

(spam-protected):~# ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.029 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.035 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.043 ms

Do you get any response at all?

Another thing you may try, is to run the OLSR daemon with debug level 7 or
higher. At that
level, BMF will print packet statistics as soon as OLSR is killed. So:
- On each node, open two console windows
- in the first window of each node, start the OLSR deamon: olsrd -d 7
- in one of the the other console windows, do a ping  for about 1
- press Ctrl-C in the first console window of each node, to stop the OLSR
- check the statistics

It looks like I am alone with  previous post about bmf, so let me ask a more
general question.

Has anyone used any form of multicast routing on linux that actually works,
preferably one that is compatible with olsr?
