[radvd-devel-l] Advertising interface is not "autoconfigured"

Hello Vincent,

Before you run radvd on your 'R' box, turn off or disable the forwarding
temporarily through

   echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/<all or ethX>/forwarding

Run radvd and then enable forwarding through

   echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/<all or ethX>/forwarding

This is one way of enabling autoconfiguration for router interfaces.

Hope this helps.

Subject:    [radvd-devel-l] Advertising interface is not "autoconfigured"


I've bee using radvd in order to configure a small 6to4 network:

|R |
 +   ______

R and the Host are 2 linux hosts.
R sends the RA to the host that gets its dynamic 6to4.
However the eth0 interface of R cannot be auto-configured.

How could it be fixed (automaticly) ?

PS: R's configuration file:
interface eth0
               AdvSendAdvert on;

               # Advertise at least every 30 seconds
               MaxRtrAdvInterval 30;

               prefix 0:0:0:beef::/64
                       AdvOnLink on;
                       AdvAutonomous on;
                       Base6to4Interface ppp0;

                       # Very short lifetimes for dynamic addresses
                       # AdvDefaultLifetime 300;
                       AdvPreferredLifetime 120;

net.ipv6.conf.eth0.autoconf = 1
