neighbor discovery problem



Hi,

Since I added IPv6 to my network, and started really using it, I'm seeing
some strange things happening.

For instance, I'm on machine 2a01:678:1:443::443, and I do :

$ traceroute6 -n 2a01:678:100:2::
traceroute6 to 2a01:678:100:2:: (2a01:678:100:2::) from
2a01:678:1:443::443, 64 hops max, 12 byte packets
1 2a01:678:1:443:: 0.636 ms 0.602 ms 0.525 ms
2 2a01:678:1:443:: 2999.665 ms !A 2999.636 ms !A 2999.680 ms !A

2a01:678:1:443:: is it's default gateway, and is also directly connected to
2a01:678:100:2::, but it does not seem to be able to contact it.

If I log onto the gateway, and I :

$ ping6 -c 1 2a01:678:100:2::
PING6(56=40+8+8 bytes) 2a01:678:100:: --> 2a01:678:100:2::
16 bytes from 2a01:678:100:2::, icmp_seq=0 hlim=64 time=1.146 ms

--- 2a01:678:100:2:: ping6 statistics ---
1 packets transmitted, 1 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/std-dev = 1.146/1.146/1.146/0.000 ms

It works, and now, I can :
$ traceroute6 -n 2a01:678:100:2::
traceroute6 to 2a01:678:100:2:: (2a01:678:100:2::) from
2a01:678:1:443::443, 64 hops max, 12 byte packets
1 2a01:678:1:443:: 0.647 ms 0.671 ms 0.417 ms
2 2a01:678:100:2:: 0.852 ms 0.790 ms 0.669 ms

Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but, well, I can't seem to find ou what.

2a01:678:1:443::443 is a 7.0
2a01:678:1:443:: is a 6.2
2a01:678:100:2:: is a 6.0

Those are not up to date to the latest thing you can get, but they're
production machines, and I'm not really willing to upgrade them unless I
really need to :-)
