FRR / OSPF6 issues



  • First off, great job on integrating FRR into pfSense, it already seems to have more working goodies than Quagga ever did.

    However, I've run into a snag, the OSPF6 configuration pages don't appear to be generating the correct output into the /var/etc/frr/ospf6d.conf file.
    Specifically the only way I could get OSPF6 working was to manually add in a line to enable it.

    Inside the router ospf6, the 'interface em0 area 0.0.0.0' entry is missing.  Regular ospf doesn't appear to need this line to start kicking out OSPF hello packets on the interface, but in ospf6, it appears to be mandatory.

    Anyone else using FRR/OSPF6 and run into similar issues?

    OSPF6 is probably the least tested component of FRR. It was easy to implement because it was nearly identical to regular OSPF, so I put it in, but I didn't have a good way to test it out yet.

    Open a bug report with the details of that under https://redmine.pfsense.org/projects/pfsense-packages/issues, if you pick FRR for the category it should automatically assign it to me.

    I pushed a fix for this and a couple other syntax issues I found along the way. Hopefully it behaves properly now, give it a try.
