    peer to peer wifi communication

    Hello,

    I want to have a server-client communication between two PCs using wifi. So far I can do that by using an intermediate router with DHCP using TCP/IP programing. What I would like is to take the router out of the loop, in other words have peer to peer communication between the server and the client with static IPs. The two systems run linux. Sorry if this is a bit off the topic of the forum.

    Any clues on how to do that?

    Are you just confused as to how to set up static IPs or...?
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    Thanks for the reply. No I am not confused . I have already done setting up the IPs as static but still my server-client programs could not talk to each other.... One solution is that I need to change the mode of my wifi cards from "managed" to "ad-hoc" (found in the man pages of iwconfig), and then it seems to be working just fine. Another solution that I ve been told is to use Host AP mode, but I have not tried this latter. Anyway, apologies as it is a bit off from the forums scope.
