Unsure of whether I would need IP forwarding or bridging

Hello all. I currently have several Raspberry Pis connected together over an ad-hoc BATMAN mesh network, and each of these Pis is able to also act as an access point and have smartphones connect. I am able to ping from one Pi to another across the mesh, so the mesh is functional. I am also able to p...

Re: How to allow users to communicate with each other in a Pi-based BATMAN-adv mesh network?

No matter where you join a mesh , you should be able to reach every node. This is fundamental to the concept of mesh networks itself. All nodes must be able to forward and route packets to support such indirect connrctions. ghans Makes sense, thanks! Rolling off of this, because I have the BATMAN-a...

Re: How to allow users to communicate with each other in a Pi-based BATMAN-adv mesh network?

What prevents you from installing a simple XMPP or IRC server on one node and joining it ? Every batman-adv node acts as if connected to the same TCP/IP LAN so far i know ? ghans I guess I wasn't sure how the back-end functioned. I believe you're correct about the TCP/IP LAN setup. My main idea is ...

How to allow users to communicate with each other in a Pi-based BATMAN-adv mesh network?

I've got a mesh network up and running that uses several Pis as the nodes in the mesh and utilizes the BATMAN-adv routing algorithm. However I can't do much with this network so far besides ping the other nodes in the mesh. What I'm interested in now is allowing some sort of deeper communication, so...

Re: Bridging 2 WLANs where one is a Batman Mesh point, and other is a DHCP AP

Hi Glenn. I am doing a very similar project to this, and I was wondering if you've been able to get your setup working yet?

Re: Creating a mobile mesh network

I've looked at the post you've mentioned before, but it doesn't make any mention of whether the mesh can connect to the broader internet, since bridging seems to be problematic. I will try the NAT option that is mentioned in the answer post's EDIT and see what happens.

Creating a mobile mesh network

Hello all. For a project I'm tasked with creating a mobile mesh network using several Pis as the nodes in the mesh, where one of the nodes can connect to the internet and serve web requests to the rest of the nodes in the mesh, and the nodes in the mesh can all communicate among each other. I've see...
