Sharing ppp connection with wlan interface
 
I'm on Debian Sid, and I've been 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:

Code:

ifdown wlan0
iwconfig wlan0 essid "VinaNET" mode Ad-Hoc
ifconfig wlan0 192.168.0.254
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
/etc/init.d/dnsmasq stop
/etc/init.d/dnsmasq start
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o ppp0 -j MASQUERADE

The script goes just fine and the client computer can see the wireless network but can't connect, it only keeps trying:

Code:

DHCPDISCOVER on ath0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval x
Here's my dnsmasq.conf file:

Code:

domain-needed
bogus-priv
interface=wlan0
dhcp-range=192.168.0.1,192.169.0.100,12h

I'm not quite sure if that's an iptables or a dnsmasq problem.

Thanks!

Is your Wifi access point running a DHCP Server on it that would be conflicting with your server?
