i am running Fedora Core 5
here is my radvd.conf

interface eth0
   AdvReachableTime 300;
   AdvSendAdvert on;
   AdvIntervalOpt on;
   MinRtrAdvInterval 3;
   MaxRtrAdvInterval 10;
   HomeAgentLifetime 100;
   HomeAgentPreference 20;
#   AdvHomeAgentInfo on;
   prefix 2001:620:500::1/64
              AdvOnLink on;
              AdvAutonomous on;
              AdvRouterAddr on;

here is how i execute radvd-0.9.1

 radvd -d 5 -m logfile -l logbook

my sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.forwarding=0 is by default

i execute radvd without setting forwarding to 1 at node-1, node-1
auto-configures itself (strange!!) and does not auto-configures node-2

ok, i terminate radvd thread set sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.forwarding=1,
it stops autoconfiguring itself but does not autoconfigures the other node
as well.

However, if i reboot the system, set sysctl -w
net.ipv6.conf.all.forwarding=1 and then run radvd it would work properly
autoconfiguring the other node

any ideas about this strange behaviour

thanks in advance
