Subject: Re: IPV6 routing problem

Thank you Emmanuel and Hannes, I went through the thread and the
suggested fix and it definitely makes sense. I will apply the fix and
test it out.

A general question, Can you suggest a good reference documentation to
understand the Linux kernel IPV6 routing and neighboring subsystem
better? The O Reilly book does not have much about IPV6.
