(usagi-users 04056) Re: ping6 is sent out from wrong interface


Thank you for your reply.

I'm not convinced yet.
I don't think it's correct that kernel or ping6 arbitrarily decides outgoing interface.

Is this really an expected behaviour?
Could you explain to me the reason of it, too?

I think the behavior should be similar to IPv4.

The following is my image. ipv6_dev_find() is an imaginary function, which
finds the interface with a given source address.

How do you think?
