Hi Marek,
Thanks for the reply.
All the mesh nodes and test PC are in the same subnet,2,3, with the PC on attached to the ethernet on .3

I had thought that as they all on the same subnet and bridged that this would be sufficient just relying on standard arps across the entire network as there is no routing. On this basis I assumed there is no need to announce any networks/hosts. Is this a correct understanding?
