I am setting up a Linux box with some ISDN cards used for dialin. When I
dial in control is passed to one of several waiting IPv6 capable pppd
processes (I'm using the Bieringer pppd patch).

This creates the interfaces ppp0, ppp1, ...

On these interfaces the peer will send solicitations in order to be
autoconfigured with a global address from my prefix.

The problem is that I seem to be unable to start radvd because the
interfaces in the radvd.conf file are not present at radvd startup time
(I did a "chkconfig radvd on").

Since these interfaces will appear and disappear in an interleaved
dynamic pattern (according to dialin needs) it won't be enough to start
radvd "after" they have come up. Hopefully I wont have to autogenerate a
radvd.conf file and restart radvd after every interface state change?

If anybody can shed some light on this I will be a happy hacker!

Best regards
