Radvd[19080]: IPv6 forwarding setting is: 0, should be 1



  • Hello,

    I am running pfSense 2.2.6 and attempting to get IPv6 up and running on Comcast HSI. In the Router Advertisement Daemon (radvd) logs I am seeing a few things that don't look right and I cannot seem to track down a resolution.

    In the "Routing" logs:
    Feb 23 12:53:15 radvd[19080]: version 1.9.1 started
    Feb 23 12:53:15 radvd[19080]: IPv6 forwarding setting is: 0, should be 1
    Feb 23 12:53:15 radvd[19080]: IPv6 forwarding seems to be disabled, but continuing anyway.
    Feb 23 12:53:15 radvd[19080]: no auto-selected prefix on interface em1, disabling advertisements
    Feb 23 12:53:15 radvd[19119]: sendmsg: Can't assign requested address
    Feb 23 12:53:16 radvd[19119]: attempting to reread config file
    Feb 23 12:53:16 radvd[19119]: sendmsg: Can't assign requested address
    Feb 23 12:53:16 radvd[19119]: resuming normal operation
    Feb 23 12:53:19 radvd[19119]: attempting to reread config file
    Feb 23 12:53:19 radvd[19119]: resuming normal operation

    Can anyway shed light on why I am seeing the above problems being logged in bold? I had tried just about everything and cannot resolve these issues.

    Please help!

    Thank you!

  • Your prefix size is ? Configuration ? Post scrshots of IPv6 Interfaces-WAN, Interfaces-LAN ?



  • Hello HDA,

    Sorry about that! Was meaning to attach screen shots but forgot!

    Thank you,

  • Pretty sure that's just log spam because the sysctl is set after radvd starts. Is everything working and it's just something you noticed?
