A HNA announces a prefix outside the OLSR mesh network. In fact it
announces that the local node can reach this prefix, the HNA allows
the other nodes to access this prefix through the local node.

The ping mechanism of the dyn_gw plugin checks the bi-directional
connectivity to a host within this prefix.

If you are re-distributing a route to the internet, the prefix would
be (the default route) and the ping address would be a host
on the internet (e.g., the google dns).
