BMX6 Mesh networking protocol
bmx6 in OpenWRT¶
Bmx6 is currently in the routing official feed of OpenWRT, so to install it from a existing system you can use opkg
opkg install bmx6 bmx6-uci-config luci-app-bmx6
Compile it by adding a feed¶
If you are compiling your own OpenWRT, you can add the routing feed (already enabled by default) which can be found here
Then run "make menuconfig" and select the bmx6 package in Networking -> Routing and redirection
It is recommended to select also, at least, the uci plugin (bmx6-uci-config)
You can select "luci-app-bmx6" to have a nice web interface for manage and monitorize the routing daemon.
Finally type "make" to build the image.
