Router Advertisement Option doesn't take

  • I'm running

    and did a gitsync this morning.  No matter what I set the Router Advertisement to on the DHCPv6 Server page for my LAN, the raflags for my lan interface appears to get set as 'MO'.  I'm using the ISC DHCPv6 server and want to disable this.  I've set the option to 'disable', but still see the advertisements being sent.  Sure enough, in the /var/etc/rtadvd.conf I still see the raflags for the lan interface set to 'MO'.  I'm manually modified the file and that seems to stop the advertisements, but if I do a gitsync, or modify the service, or just reboot the firewall, it always gets set back to 'MO' again.  Am I doing something wrong?



  • I found something related I think.  If I have the 'Enable DHCPv6 server on LAN interface' box unchecked, the 'MO'  keeps getting applied, regardless of the Router Advertisement setting.  Once I checked the Enable box, then set the RA to disabled, the RAFLAG was set to zero.  Unfortunately, I don't want the box checked, so when I unchecked it, the 'MO' came back, even though it had the RA still set to disabled.


  • must have the bits set wrong, I'll look into it.
