#1540 closed defect (fixed)

ad-hoc mode runs each user as DHCP host

Reported by: dsd Owned by: tomeu
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Sugar Version: 0.86.x
Severity: Unspecified Keywords: r+
Cc: Distribution/OS: Fedora
Bug Status: Unconfirmed

Description

Ad-hoc mode doesn't work. Reproduced on Sugar-0.86.3 on Fedora 12.

In both cases (creating an ad-hoc network, joining an ad-hoc network), the IP address 10.42.43.1 is assigned to the interface, and NetworkManager starts running a DHCP server (dnsmasq). This means that everyone on the network has the same IP hence no collaboration is possible.

avahi-autoipd should be used instead.
