[radvd-devel-l] Running two radvd daemons on the
markryde at gmail.com
Thu Mar 20 03:29:59 EDT 2008
I am new to radvd; I had installed radvd on a machine in a LAN and
configured and ran it successfully; the other hosts got the prefix from this
radvd and configured IP addresses according to it.
Regarding radvd daemon
"there should be only one node running it it the whole network."
I had tried to install a second radvd on this LAN and I had configured it
with a different prefix and activated it. The hosts on the LAN had configured
one more IPV6 address, with the prefix of the second radvd daemon
My question is:
- is there a way to prevent such scenario ?
Is it the responsibility of the radvd daemon to make sure that there
is no other
radvd daemons running on the same LAN ? or is there some intention to change the
ipv6 kernel so that in such a case only the first radvd ROUTER ADVERTISEMENT
message will be accepted ?
