please consider the following situation:

1 Thinkpad X24 laptop with Zonet CF1100 CF wifi card
1 collie zaurus also with a Zonet CF1100 CF wifi card
1 wifi access point not under the control of the user that provides internet connectivity

I want

a) to connect to the Internet both from the Z and the laptop
b) ssh into the Z from the laptop over wifi

The problem is that the AP is set up such that even though both the Z and the computer have a 192.168.1.x IP, they cannot ping each other.

Is there a solution for this?

actually its a bloody good system for helping to protect users from each other.

think "virus" and you can see why not being able to connect to others is a good idea on a anon hotspot

still like the reverse ssh option, i can see myself using that one on occasion
