olsrd can do this, it can do it not only for 2 or 3 hops but for hundreds of
hops aswell *GG

and there is no option do enable (or disable) this,.. as creating routes to
destinations further way than one hop this is the sole purpose of a routing

but there are various OS specific methods to break routing/forwarding, or
anything *G

my general advice (for such a simpe 2 hop setup), ist try to setup manual
routes first, to learn and understand how routing works, and how to debug
it, and what u have to configure in you OS to make it work,.

and afterwards start olsrd,..


p.s. you should also state that u (as i asume) used macbooks, and this is
very likely the reason for your problems,..
