[Olsr-users] Inquiry about secure plugin of OLSR

I am currently ping to a direct neighbors...
Like you say it seem to reject OLSRd packet... as in the OLSRd routing table
it define the etx to that neighbor as INFINITE
Although it's INFINITE, I'm still able to ping that neighbor IP

I was hoping to implement the secure in a way that under same SSID
I would have 2 different secure network. That devices under network 1 do not
communicate to devices under network 2... As they each have their own secure

Is there any ways to implement the secure plugin that allow me to do so???
