I am trying to setup a wifi access point with my Ubuntu server. I am having some trouble getting everything working correctly. Mainly the problem appears to be with routing or iptables but I cannot say for certain.
My network is setup like so;
Server is NS01 (Ubuntu 11.10 server amd64)
Interfaces: eth0 (primary), br0 (bridges eth1 and wlan0) and , tun0 (OpenVPN).
What does work: When I bring the access point online the bridge comes up and my laptop can phone get an IP address lease from my DHCP server.
What does not work: When I try to ping the new host (my phone or laptop) from my workstation I get a reply back of
Destination host unreachable icmp_seq=1. I have checked iptables and I pretty sure that is working fine, I have INPUT and OUTPUT set to ACCEPT so iptables is pretty permissive.
I am thinking it is a routing issue but the routing table looks "ok" to me.
Can anyone give me some insight to what I may need to look at, I am so close to getting this thing working.
