Hello Ole,

The main thing I'm currently missing is OSPFv3. The multicast packets
don't arrive in linux kernel.
Attached is a pcap file showing the dropped packets.
OSPFv2 seems to be working fine.
I hope to test the BGP for IPv4 and IPv6 today.

I have put my findings in the vppsb-dev mailinglist.

I would be really happy if I could get this setup working.
I currently have the possibility to test any code changes you make :-)
