Not sure what you mean... if you are talking about "locally attached
networks" (see RFC7181, they are the same as OLSRv1 HNAs) you can just
set them in the config file.

So you want to distribute an information but its not a direct route... *hmm*

I have been working together with some people from the HOMENET group
to get HNCP working better with mesh networks... this would be the
perfect solution for you. Unfortunately this is still work in progress
with networks where links go up and down all the time.
