question on ad-hoc n/ws
i have a doubt (and i cant clear it up myself right now, as i only have 1 card on me).
its how ad-hoc connections work. when a cell is formed by one machine, and another one joins that particular cell, does it get the ip addr thro dhcp, or is it assigned one by the machine which first formed the cell?
so, if i want to connnect to an ad-hoc n/w, after specifying the cell's essid, would i have to get an ip addr for my machine via dhcp, or will i have gotten one when i give the cell essid thro iwconfig?
