Update 2.4.3 Radvd Interface Missing

  • Starting with the PfSense 2.4.3 update the radvd interface on which to broadcast router advertisements disappeared. There doesn't seem to be anything in the changelog as to why this was removed either. I also noticed that it did not return with 2.4.3-p1.

    Does anyone know why this option was removed and if we can get it back?

  • What specifically are you referring to?  I just checked and on each interface, under DHCPv6 server & RA, there's a Router Advertisement tab.

    BTW, there's no such thing as broadcasts in IPv6, only multicasts.  The IPv6 equivalent of a broadcast is an all nodes multicast.

  • I'm specifically referring to the option under "Router Advertisements" that is labeled "RA Interface".  It allowed you to choose which interface to multicast your advertisements on.

    For example if you wanted to multicast using a CARP IP then you could choose to do just that.

    What version where you using before?  The interfaces you have IPv6 setup on would be listed under RA where you can enable it or not, etc.  And set its mode of operation, etc.
