I haven't used ad-hoc for a long time so I can't say that this procedure
worked for me recently, but it did in the past, still I hope it's useful.
(I only used wireless-tools like this, so open/shared network, with/without
WEP configured through iwconfig)
- make sure both interfaces are down.
- configure one interface using iwconfig.
- bring up the interface. (I'm not sure if it needs to have an IP address at
this point, that's something to try out)
Possibly the ifconfig/iwconfig steps need to be swapped.
- as described in the nabble post, the adapter will first try to find an
existing ad-hoc network. If it finds one it should be displayed in iwconfig.
If the adapter can't find a suitable ad-hoc network, it should set one up by
- After some time iwconfig should show an ad-hoc network. (either the one it
found, to which it should now be connected, or the one it created, to which
others should now be able to connect) As long as iwconfig shows
00:00:00:00:00:00 you're not connected and your adapter didn't create an
ad-hoc network either.
When iwconfig shows someting other than 00:00:00:00:00:00 you can bring up the
second adapter, it should find the network set up by the first.
I'm not sure how long it takes to find / set up a network, but don't count in
seconds. On the other hand, ten minutes would be rather long.
Using Tomcat but need to do more? Need to support web services, security?
