I'm experiencing a strange situation
The two nodes (client and gateway) are running batman 0.3 (experimental
rv636) in the right way with option --bmx-defaults.
A wifi laptop associated with AP_g (gateway' AP) can browse internet
pretty well while associated with AP_n (client' AP) it can't!
Please note that client itself can browse internet! (I tryed ssh into node
and then wget something).
I verified no nameserver problem neither firewall blocking rules (gateway
and node are flashed and run the same firmware)
Just to get you right. your laptop is not running batman, just a usual
wifi-client in managed mode. and your APs are not running batman as well,
just usual APs in managed mode.
If that is the case the problems is actually only related to non-batman
nodes!? If not, try to collect further information about your iproute
$ip r ls t 254
$ip r ls t 65
$ip r ls t 66
$ip r ls t 67
And maybe your firewall or nat settings?
But what is puzzling me is that running batman 0.2 on nodes... laptop
associated with AP_n (client' AP) can browse!
(I've only changed the daemon, no others change into environment -
procedures dinamically change batmand command string)
I noticed the parameter "--no-unreachable-rule" then tryed adding this
parameter at the batman 0.3 command string but unfortunately with no
Batman-0.3 and beyond supports policy routing, thus uses 3 routing tables for
configuring the routes. There is table 65 for HNA routes, 66 for host routes,
and 67 for default routes (the command: ip route list table 66 # for example
shows the host routes). Also batman usually adds an unreachable rule to the
end of table 66 so that all hosts which IP netmask is falling into the
netmask used for the batman mesh is immediately considered unreachable if not
having a dedicated batman-host route to that IP. The --no-unreachable-rule
simply does not set this roule. Using this switch is usully only necessary if
you are doing very fancy stuff.
Maybe I'm boring you... bat have any ideas about?
