  • Should be fixed on last snapshot.

  • thanks Ermal! Its fix now.. Noticed another problem. My IPv6 DHCP isn't providing a static IP address anymore. Has something change or is it broke? I checked the process and its not running. Noticed another thread on the issue but no one has responded yet.


    edit: I checked the file system and the dhcpdv6.conf hasn't been updated since the 25th when i did a firmware update. I was able to manually run it typing:

     /usr/local/sbin/dhcpd -6 -user dhcpd -group _dhcp -chroot /var/dhcpd -cf /etc/dhcpdv6.conf -pf /var/run/dhcpdv6.pid em2

  • Should be fixed in latest code.

  • thank you! its running now and shelling out ipv6 addresses

  • I just updated to the following build and have have the same issue (radvd won't start)

    Previously I was on a beta build from last October and it was working fine. Any suggestions?

  • You need the one that will come next or gitsync.
