System.log Cannot Forward from IPv6 Local Address Issue



  • I am running the latest 2.3.3-DEVELOPMENT (amd64) built on Sun Jul 31 00:29:35 CDT 2016 FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p6 with an IPv4 WAN connection and a IPv6 6to4 he.net GIF tunnel.

    My system log is filling up with the following error mesages about every 30 seconds. What is causing this error? How can I suppress it from the logs and/or resolve the issue?

    Thank you for your help!

    I believe this issue was due to a teamed interface that I had enabled on my i350 Intel Ethernet Adapter inside of my HTPC. After removing the teamed interface, the issue went away.

    I think we should add a similar suppress message like we have in the GUI to Suppress ARP messages
