tunnel not showing host names only ip addresses

Not sure how to fix this. This setting does not seem to fix it... anyone have any thoughts?

thanks

I tried olsr.restart again

I tried olsr.restart again and it seemed to work for my node.

Yes, the olsr.restart only affects the node that appears on its neighbors as IP address only.
This function does not affect your neighbors that appear as IP address only on your node.

Now my node host name shows

Now my node host name shows up on my tunnel client's node but his still shows as ip address only. Done multiple rlsr.restart's with no change. Anyone else ever had this problem? Thanks

still shows as ip address only

My Mikrotik hAP all but refuses to broacast its name.
I can spend hours doing 'olsrd.restart's and never get it to display correctly on its neighbors.
:-(

OLSR restart the other node.

It's the node that appears as IP address only - not your node - that needs to do the OLSR restart.  I have a couple of mine that ALWAYS come up as IP only after a node firmware update.  Have to restart OLSR on those nodes every time.

Thanks for the info. I have

Thanks for the info. I have restarted it on both my node and my tunnel node multiple times. Still showing his node as IP only. Not sure what else to try. Not critical I guess but kinda annoying.

You cannot fix their node by restarting your node.
It is the node that is displaying with IP address on its neighbors that must be 'aredn.olsr.restart'ed.
I hope this helps,

Yup I get that thanks. Have

Yup I get that thanks. Have done it on his node as well with no changes. I guess we are stuck with it.

Thank you Chuck.

We did a reset to first boot

We did a reset to first boot on the problem node and it seems to have fixed the issue!

Weak link?

I don't know if it's relevant, but in my field tests I have noticed that when my node first connects with another, and when the link is weak (too slow or not aligned wel) it will show the IP instead of the host name.   As the link quality increases, the host names of neighbors show up. And eventually the whole list of other nodes populates. So, could it be a weak link?

We only have tunnels so far

We only have tunnels so far but a valid point I'm sure. Thanks
