(usagi-users 04089) Linux and stateless IPv6 specific route autoconfiguration



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

Hi,

I have spent some time trying to get stateless specific route (not
prefix) autoconfiguration working, but have not been sucessful. I've
asked Freenode's #ipv6, the radvd-devel list, and a couple kernel
developers, but have not had a complete answer. Does Linux (2.6.27+)
support stateless specific route autoconfiguration?

Here is my Radvd config and some more details on what I've tried
<http://lists.litech.org/pipermail/radvd-devel-l/2008-December/000372.html>.
I ran the tests through on 2.6.28 as well, which is using this config
<ftp://icadyptes.org/icadyptes/abs/core/base/kernel26/kernel26-config>
(very close to the 2.6.27.x config). I also tried on Arch Linux
briefly, but had no luck on it either. I have checked the /proc sysctl
options and have tested from various different client
and server boxes. Stateless prefixes work fine, with default and
non-default route setups. Adding the routes manually works as it
should.

If the vanilla Linux kernel does not support this, is there a patch
available? If not, I may have to give it a try once I learn enough
C :-).

Thanks,
Teran
