I have two Linux Boxes, one with Slackware 12 and other with Ubuntu 7.10. The Ubuntu machine has an USB wifi stick, model DWL-G132, working nice with ndiswrapper. The Slackware 12 machine is a notebook with Intel 2200BG wireless. They both work with access points without bugs.
I want to create a Ad-Hoc network using these two machines. On the Slackware machine, i'm performing the following commands:
# iwconfig eth1 mode Ad-Hoc
# iwconfig eth1 essid pulse
# iwconfig eth1 channel 8
# ifconfig eth1 10.0.0.1 up
On the Ubuntu box, i'm using these commands:
sudo /etc/dbus-1/event.d/25NetworkManager stop
sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode Ad-Hoc
sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid pulse
sudo iwconfig wlan0 channel 8
sudo iwconfig wlan0 10.0.0.2 up
I can't ping 10.0.0.2 from 10.0.0.1 and the other way around neither. There are no other interfaces or networks set on the machines. The other services aren't available either. Am I missing any step?
