Why is this? I am at war with the other one, but i cannot reach his cities over land because i cannot move in his sphere of influence

You mean Zone of Control? It prevents you from walking past enemy units, as certainly those units are not allowing that to hapen peacefully. See Freeciv client help->ZOC for more info. --Cazfi 11:51, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
I just noticed something like that (in v2.4.2). One of my units was pretty much inprisoned by a nation I had a cease-fire of peace with (can't remember), although I wanted to go through their territory to help them fight in a war. Besides, the AI does not seem to care about that rule, they are constantly going past my units to kill workers.
Zoc imposed by units and national borders are two distinct things. Military units cannot enter national territory of the nation they are in peace with. Allied players may help each other by moving troops inside national borders. If AI is killing your workers, it doesn't sound like you have a peace. ZoC rules with their exceptions are explained in the help->ZOC as I said above --Cazfi (talk) 13:25, March 1, 2014 (UTC)
