Hi,

I've successfully created the AdHoc network on the Pi and I'm using Avahi for zero-conf and ipv4ll support. However, when I connect another device on the AdHoc network, I cannot communicate with the pi. The zero-conf name will resolve to the 169/255 ip, but I cannot see to ping or access any services on it.

Any ideas?

You need to out 169/24 routes.

Like such

Code: Select all
route add -net 169.254.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 dev wlan0 metric 99
route add default dev wlan0 metric 99
