[Olsr-users] AHCP

It is interesting.


My requirement is that there are some embedded devices which work in AP
mode under one use case. Under another use case it is going to be in
mesh mode. But it needs to communicate to external network which works
in IPv4.



Is AHCP worth looking at for my case ?  Is there any scalability issue ?
How long does it take to configure 10 hop 30-40 nodes mesh ?

all my access points, gateways and repeaters autoconfigure themselves
with ip addresses, its actually not that difficult to accomplish

Hi Benjamin and all,

Actually is anyone using any kind of auto-configuration of the AdHoc
IP address or is everyone (like me) using static addressing?

At least I control the boxes I'm putting out so I can pick the IP
addresses - but how to you manage it in a community Freifunk type
