HSMM-Pi v0.3.0 Available

Today I created the v0.3.0 release tag of the HSMM-Pi project.  The upgrade steps from v0.2.0 are pretty straightforward:

  1. cd ~pi/hsmm-pi
  2. git pull
  3. git checkout v0.3.0
  4. sh install.sh

Here are a few of the changes in the release:

  • Advertise mesh services when the wired adapter is in WAN & LAN mode (previously only in LAN mode).
  • Use raw sockets to retrieve OLSRD mesh statistics instead of using CURL (the OLSRD plugin does not produce HTTP 1.0/1.1 responses, so CURL is not the right tool for the job).
  • Added a WiFi scanning action (Issue 8) to show nearby wireless networks.
  • Derive the default WiFi IP address from the wireless adapter MAC address in a fresh installation similar to the behavior in Broadband-Hamnet.
  • Better support for installation on the Ubuntu 12.04 on the Beaglebone.

Please file any defects or features requests in the Issues section of the Github project.  Thanks!

  1. Can someone show us some speed and distance stats between nodes? Using “rubber duck” antennas will do. And not necessarily between two HSMM-Pi nodes. Just one HSMM-Pi node would be interesting.

  3. Great job!

    I’ve tested at home with my 2 local nodes (Linksys with Broadband Hamnet v1 onboard) and works great!
    It will be a cheap solution for “meshing hamradio”. It will be nice to have a checklist for creating a node from another kind of device, such as Ubiquity bullets. I’ve tried (unsuccessfully) to create a node with an Ubiquity and AirOS… have you got some tips to give me a hand to have a chance with it?

    Thanks for your preciuos job!

    • Thanks for the feedback, Leo! I’ve not tried the Ubiquity bullets, but they look like a good commercial alternative. Do you have any details on the mesh protocol used by the Ubiquity devices (i.e. OLSRD)? If not, then I’ll make a note to do some research in the near future.

      Best,

      • Ubiquity devices (such as Nanostation, Picostation, Bullet and even Airgrid) can be setted up to use ad-hoc networks and OLSR, either with AirOS or OpenWRT or DDWRT on it! I’ve asked you some “tips & tricks” to start a setup to join my mesh with a brand-new-ubiquity-node. I’ve buyed a Picostation to start playing with it… it will be nice to use it into the hsmm-mesh because it’s a cheap hardware and it’s largely sold (diffused).
        Have you got a command-line check-list to setup a mesh node instead of the html panel? That will be a nice start for me to try the Ubiquity setup. I’ll be pleasured to share my tests with you and your blog’s readers.
