A really strange request to tax the genius minds - or maybe not!



  • Scenario

    PPPoE connection works perfectly on V4 and V6 all set to dhcp. V6 uses 'Use IPv4 connectivity as parent interface' so the ipv6 traffic and requests go over pppoe - all logical and working. Gateway monitoring working perfectly also.

    Now, my ISP also allows me to use static IPv6, don't ask why I would want to when everything is working, just bear with me.

    I can set up a static v6 IP and that works - albeit with the help of a "route change *" command , however I cannot get the gateway monitoring to work as that needs to specify ppoe.

    Anyone any idea how to get the gateway monitor to work?
