Bug #252

addresses distributed with AHCP appear to be firewalled off (cannot route tcp)

New Urgent Dave Täht


Now that ahcp can work, I started deploying a more complex mesh network, and although routes and dns information (UDP) get through, tcp connections do not.

I am thinking I have one of two problems. One is that the server needs to be configured on fixed ips/thenetmask OR the default firewall rules inside of openwrt are messing things up for the mesh interfaces… or there is something else wrong deeper.

More news as it happens.

I have some thought towards bug #266 being a source of this problem

While doing this, I will write some documentation for the homenet group
