Hi all,

I successfully built up a secure Mesh Network with 8 Nodes, however the peering/authentication takes sometimes about 10 minutes or fails completely.

I found out that during authentication time my CPU was overloaded. So I edited the Source of the mesh_mpm to authenticate to only one Peer at a time and ignore other peer notifications.

It works for me, but is this the right way to do it?

Patch is attached.
