Dear all

I'm trying to learn BIRD4 to do ospf over batman-adv
got to router :
1. router A
1.a. OSPF is at interface 'bat0'
1.b. Have address at another interface, and have 'external
1.c. bird4.conf is at :
1.d. have birdc4 installed

2. router B
1.a. OSPF is at interface 'bat0'
1.b. bird4.conf is at :
1.c. Not enough space to have birdc4 onboard

Check from
A. Router A using birdc4 :
bird> show ospf neighbors
Router ID       Pri          State      DTime   Interface  Router IP          1         full/dr     00:56   bat0
bird> show ospf state


                distance 0
                network metric 1000
                external metric 1000 via

                distance 1000
                network metric 1000

                distance 1000
Looks like anything work fine.

B. Router B, using terminal console :
root at OpenWrt:~# route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
default         UG    0      0        0
br-lan        *        U     0      0        0 bat0   UG    0      0        0 bat0    *        U     0      0        0
Looks like :
B.1. External route defined at Router-A is broadcasted ... nice
B.2. Kernel route table of Router-A is NOT broadcasted.

My question is : Why Kernel route table of Router-A is NOT broadcasted ?

Kindly please give me any of your enlightenment to fix this problem.
