I am a beginner at OLSR. Please help me with the following questions.


I have a scenario:

I need to have embedded nodes running OLSRd. This mesh needs to keep
communicating to windows PC. The needs to send/ receive IP packets
to/from the mesh nodes.


Please tell me if the following options could work. If there are other
ways, please tell me.


1.	PC with 802.11 in ad-hoc mode without OLSRd. 




   a. In this configuration I think I can do passive listening. But
could I actually send commands to the network ? If possible how ? Should
I just wrap my data in OLSR format ?


2.	win32 PC running OLSRd. The PC has 802.11 card.



      a. Is this possible ?


      b. If it is possible to interface windows PC to OLSR mesh, do I
have to implement a plugin ? Please explain.


      c. I tried building the OLSR code on cygwin. It gave error. Please
tell if anyone tried OLSRd on windows PC.



     Please tell me if there is other configuration I should study.
