Mesh point config

I've googling without success.
Does a mesh point need an IP address?
Can someone point me to a good documentation explaining in details how mesh points work?

If referring to OLSR, yes. The Mesh has to be on a network of its own, this is generally on the same subnet. Routing is done by announcing subnets from those interfaces in the OLSR panel.

in this case, is the module collectd-mod-olsrd manditory?

I would say no. It doesn't seem to be listed as a dependency.

If referring to an 802.11s mesh, then no, an IP address is not needed, although if you want to do any administration then enabling dhcp client would be useful.
