One should clarify here:
- This is how it works in Red Hat Linux 7.1+, and Peter Bieringer's
- There is no need for IPV6_ROUTER=yes, it is the default if
IPV6FORWARDING is enabled. This is only supported in RHL 72 beta+ and
Peter's new scripts.
And how to enable it in general case?
'sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.forwarding=1'.
Please also note a Linux kernel feature: in Router mode, default route
will not work for forwarded packets.
