Out of Band Configuration

Table of contents


When HamWAN routing fails, it's useful to have a secondary communication channel into the network. This is called out-of-band (or OOB for short) communication. HamWAN doesn't pass regular network traffic over OOB links, only control information (eg: SSH) is allowed in most cases.
