(usagi-users 04059) Re: ping6 is sent out from wrong interface



Hi Marcus

Thank you for your quick reply.

For the reason of selecting 'eth0', I agree.
But, I think the device is specified before
looking up the routing table in this case.

This works when using only "eth1" for multicasts.
When multiple I/Fs are connected to separate networks,
this scheme requires changing the route every time
a user need to send ping to different network.

I think kernel can solve this problem better.
