I'm trying to acces txtinfo from anywhere else than localhost and have a 
empty return.

Exemple, on the olsr node, if I use
echo 'all' | nc 8080

txtinfo return me requested info but if I do from my pc
echo "all" | nc 8080

it return me nothing, not even a empty line. Exemple :
# echo "all" | nc 8119

if I check with nmap, it told me that the port 8080 is open

My txtinfo config :
LoadPlugin "olsrd_txtinfo.so.0.1"
         PlParam "port" "8080"
         PlParam "Net" ""

I tryed from Mint Linux, FreeBSD and OpenBSD with the same result.

I would like to get link cost from a server to add them to cacti graph 
so I would have statistic for quality of my link.
Is their any way to access txtinfo from other device or any other way to 
get link quality ?
