Thanks for quick response !
Still am not clear.
Here is setup what I am trying,
---------- 2001:7a8:6d7a:4::4/64 (WAN)
| ROUTER |
---------- 2001:7a8:6d7a:c::4/64 (LAN)
| LAN 1 |
Now from LAN 1 machine,
1 - ping6 to 2001:7a8:6d7a:c::4 (LAN of router) -
2 - ping6 to 2001:7a8:6d7a:4::4 (WAN of router)- WORKS
only when,route has been added manually on LAN 1
machine using 2001:7a8:6d7a:c::4 as Next HOP ( even
without enabling 'forwarding' )
Help me to understand how can step 2 be made to WORK
without adding route manually ? i.e how can this be
achived using radvd ?
What should be radvd.conf on ROUTER and do we really
need to enable 'forwarding' on ROUTER ( afa I know if
we add route as mentioned above, actually 'forwarding'
doesn't make any sense. What do you think ?)
