Connecting two Cosmos via WIFI or Bluetooth
« on: December 29, 2020, 11:02:07 am »
Has anybody connected two cosmo communicators via WLAN or Bluetooth? What are your experiences?

In some Linux distributions, one can easily create a new WLAN (sometimes called ad-hoc) on device 1; then, you can connect device 2 to this WLAN.

On cosmo's standard network manager in the bottom bar, I choose "Configure Network Connections", then the plus (+) dialog, which opens a promising list (including Wi-Fi, Team etc). But if I select one of them, nothing happens. Could this be a problem of user/groups settings?

Some more details. I created a new Wi-Fi in adhoc mode on a separate Linux box1. I can connect to box1 from another Linux box2. Security is WPA/WPA-2.

When I create a network connection (similar to the one from box2) on the Cosmo and use nmtui (or conman) for connecting, the error message is:

Could not activate connection: 802-11-wireless-security: WPA Ad-hoc disabled due to kernel bugs

Any help, what I could try instead?
