Up and running with a Pi3 with eth0 in "WAN" mode. Services (SSH, Web UI, etc...) are not available from the ethernet side in this configuration. I'm having difficulty figuring out how this is happening so I can disable it and allow administration of a node from the WAN side.

root@KE0KKM-Pi3:/home/pi# iptables -S
-P INPUT ACCEPT
-P FORWARD ACCEPT
-P OUTPUT ACCEPT
-A FORWARD -i eth0 -o wlan0 -m conntrack --ctstate RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
-A FORWARD -i wlan0 -o eth0 -j ACCEPT

Looking at this, the services are listening on all interfaces and iptables isn't preventing connections. What's going on here?

I just got 3 Rpi 3B's and am going to start learning about the mesh via these. They have a built-in Wifi with no way to connect a booster and larger antenna, so for now, Ill be just playing with them. I eventually want to get them working over a large distance with directional antennas or really high gain omni's. I can't wait to see how this works. I have been a computer/network tech for 25ish years but am new to ham (KC3GVF). I am completely intrigued about the possibilities. I'll let you know how it goes.

hsmm-pi has location data for many of the devices on the mesh.

Is there an API I can use to programmatically query that data or am I left to screen scrape it (use curl or the like to fetch the page showing the location data and then parse the html to extract it)?

OLSR Secure purpose?
Does it apply encryption on traffic or its authentication login?

Can we use two wireless adapters in internal mesh node. One for MESH and ONE as AP, to allow end user connecting to internal mesh node wireless? I am using Raspberry Pi 3. One is in built which i am using as mesh node. Can i add another wifi usb adaptor to enable the end users connecting to mesh node?

I got my pi zero w on the mesh. hurray!

I found you can use usb networking to get a computer to use the mesh. In the hsmm-pi config, admin->network->wired and change Adapter Name to usb0. Connect the OTG (middle) port into the computer and it will be able to use the mesh.

Howdy guys, Pi Zero W update!
As you can see here, this node running from the Zero W is online and I am posting this through that connection.

Now I just need to test the range of it, but looking good so far.

UPDATE: I am getting about 70% strength at about 75 feet, through minimal walls and about 80% through 30 feet of walls and ceilings, with electrical wires in them and some general noise from numerous computers for both options.

Thanks to the community for helping maintain this project. I am new to HSMM Pi and got it working fairly quickly with Raspberry Pi 2 with Wifi Adapter and one Raspberry Pi 3 with built in Wifi Adapter. Can someone let me know if I can use the Raspberry Pi Zero with Wifi Adapter or Pi Zero W in the mesh node to act as a internal node just to extend the range of the network?

I just got hsmm-pi running on 2 rpi 3. In my area i have noticed that alot of nodes are on channel -2. Does any know if the pi built wifi can see this channel?

Howdy Folks, I just ordered one of these and just realized that it could be used for a HSMM-Pi. Might be limited in some range, but I will definitely try it out once mine arrives!
