IPv6 equiv of proxy_arp_pvlan (not proxy_ndp)

Hi All,

I'm wondering if there is an IPv6 equivalent of IPv4's "proxy_arp_pvlan" sysctl setting?

I've tried setting "proxy_ndp" but this is when the proxying is required across two separate interfaces; in this particualr case (where the old 'proxy_arp_pvlan' worked) is when proxying is required on the same interface.

Does anyone else have a solution for this?

Hi All,

I've solved this thanks to a wonderful little daemon process called 'npd6'.

See the project here:

Thanks to Sean for this wonderful little app.
