[Olsr-users] Slow http info plugin on FreeBSD & firewall rule
Tue Aug 2 22:36:06 CEST 2011
Anyone have a idea of why http_info is really slow to acces on FreeBSD ?
I'm using the version 8.2 with OLSRd 0.6.1 from the package (pkg_add)
and it can take around 1 minute to acces httpinfo but once it's loaded,
changing from a tab to a other is fine but if I go into the address bar
(without closing the page or the tab, the page show is still httpinfo)
and type enter again, I have to wait 1 minute again. I don't have any
delay with OLSRd on OpenWRT. Maybe I should try to build it from the port.
Also, I couldn't find any information on this with google and I think
it's something that should be on the olsrd.org's FAQ, firewall should
have a rule to let pass port 698/UDP traffic at destination of the
broadcast address or else, the firewall will block hello paquet. The
port was easy to find but I had to use tcp dump to know why my allow to
NIC IP address was not matching.
Exemple with PF from FreeBSD or OpenBSD 4.6 and earlier. NIC is re0 and
ip address is of the nic is 10.100.0.100/24
allow on re0 proto udp to 10.100.0.100 port 698
will not work, instead, it should be
allow on re0 proto udp to 10.100.0.255 port 698
