[Olsr-users] Encryption in ad-hoc network using Openwrt+OLSR

Sorry for being ambiguous. My experience has been that either of these
package selections ...
B. wpa_supplicant & hostapd, which are complimentary
... enable IBSS-RSN WPA encryption. Selecting all 3, i.e. wpad,
wpa_supplicant, and hostapd, cause conflicts. Also, I think hostapd +
wpa_supplicant is possibly slated for obsolescence at some point (even
though these packages are all basically invoking bits from the same hostapd
I've been using the wpad package with encryption=psk2+aes w/o problem on
r38xxx revisions of OpenWRT AA and higher.
The Commotion folks are actually using wpad_mini, patched to include
IBSS_RSN. That works fine, too, and I can share the patch if you don't
mind cluttering your build tree.
