(not compiled, but will do)
We'd even recommend you not to use the prefix command. It has recently caused many problematic situations, and almost no one understands the kernel prefix management routines well. You can do the same thing by the ordinally ifconfig command. See the latest rc.net6.sample file.
a unicast application.
* kame/kame/prefix/prefix.c: changed the default values of prefixes to infinity. Finite default values were bad, because they would be installed as the lifetimes of routers' addresses, which would never increment and be invalidated in the future. NOTE: if you use the kernel that has the change made on 2000-12-03 by Koji Kawano (see CHANGELOG.2000) on a router box, and use the prefix command to assign addresses for the router, please be sure to update the prefix command and reboot the router (or at least reassign the addresses by the new prefix command). The lifetimes might now be decresing, and will expire in the near future.
previous commit. instead, added some comments on effects of the initialization.
* kame/kame/etc/rc.net6: prohibit the prefix command by default. Since the command has recently caused many problems, we should reconsider the prefix management mechanism.
for routers. XXX this is just a workaround. we need more clarifications.
afdl loop (fixed by jinmei in bsdi4 code). check port number matches.
…drinfo (see comments in explore_copy), you should check its value before calling freeaddrinfo(). (this is the only correction that I can commit now)
