I've been using IPv6 on my FreeBSD-7 host for quite some time. My
IPv6 router is a different machine, so the FreeBSD server is just a
regular host on the network.
This morning I discovered that I couldn't pass packets to hosts
outside my LAN from FreeBSD, although an OS X host on the same LAN had
no problems pinging www.kame.net.
I had this in my /etc/rc.conf:
Whenever I'd try to ping6 my local router, I'd get:
ping6: UDP connect: Network is unreachable
Also, the routing table seemed a bit screwy and was sending everything
$ netstat -nr -f inet6
I found two workarounds:
I'm leaning slightly toward the latter, as it still uses the
guaranteed-configured link local addresses, but the latter works OK
too (although it didn't when I originally configured this many months
ago, which is why I was using link local routing in the first place).
So, I'm not too sure which is right or wrong, but I definitely know
that something has changed recently. Consider this a heads-up if you
