I'm the author of "horst". There is not much interaction with the
protocol, except that the packets are marked as such, e.g. nodes which
send OLSR packets are marked as OLSR nodes, nodes which send batman (L3)
messages marked as batman nodes. It's quite easy to add the same for
batman-adv, but it's not there at the moment.
Oh ok, thanks for the explanation Bruno!
So, as I suspected, there is nothing preventing from using it with batman-adv.
We will only miss the mark on the nodes.
@cmsv: so there is no need for "another tool", horst itself can be used
in a batman-adv network as well :)
