Subject: Re: [PATCH v2] ipv6: send Change Status Report after DAD is

From: Flavio Leitner <>
Date: Thu, 16 Jan 2014 19:27:59 -0200

> The RFC 3810 defines two type of messages for multicast
> listeners. The "Current State Report" message, as the name
> implies, refreshes the *current* state to the querier.
> Since the querier sends Query messages periodically, there
> is no need to retransmit the report.
> On the other hand, any change should be reported immediately
> using "State Change Report" messages. Since it's an event
> triggered by a change and that it can be affected by packet
> loss, the rfc states it should be retransmitted [RobVar] times
> to make sure routers will receive timely.
> Currently, we are sending "Current State Reports" after
> DAD is completed.  Before that, we send messages using
> unspecified address (::) which should be silently discarded
> by routers.
> This patch changes to send "State Change Report" messages
> after DAD is completed fixing the behavior to be RFC compliant
> and also to pass TAHI IPv6 testsuite.
