Sharing ppp connection with wlan interface
I'm on Debian Sid trying to serve a ppp0 internet connection through a wireless network. I made a small script to be ran when i want to do that:
The script goes just fine and the client computer can see the wireless network but can't connect, it only keeps trying:
iwconfig wlan0 essid "VinaNET" mode Ad-Hoc
ifconfig wlan0 192.168.0.254
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o ppp0 -j MASQUERADE
Here's my dnsmasq.conf file:
DHCPDISCOVER on ath0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval x
And my syslog on the router computer.
The above goes like that forever.
Sep 20 23:46:48 vinicius kernel: [ 3349.172165] wlan0: No active IBSS STAs - trying to scan for other IBSS networks with same SSID (merge)
Sep 20 23:46:51 vinicius kernel: [ 3351.704879] wlan0: Selected IBSS BSSID 0e:45:9e:94:06:07 based on configured SSID
I'm not quite sure if that's an iptables or a dnsmasq problem.
