I wish to know how to make the autoconfiguration enabled and make it work properly for a router.
Let me elobrate my scenatio.
R1 and R2 are routers. R1 is preconfigured with IPv6 address and sends  RADVD. Though R2 is a router, it is not preconfigured with any IPv6 address but i want to it to do address autoconfiguration based on the prefix received from the router R1.
The autoconfiguration works fine as long the /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/eth0/forwarding (in the R2) is set to 0 and /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/eth0/autoconf is set to 1 . The moment proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/eth0/forwarding (in the R2) is set to 1 (i,e it becomes a router) /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/eth0/autoconf is set to 1. 
Does any one know how the make the autoconfiguration work for a router.
Have a nice weekend
Many thanks
