RE: draft-wbeebee-ipv6-cpe-router-04 comments
I already replied to your RS question on March 23. Ole has also kindly
jumped in later too and gave you an explanation in this regard. Here is
what I said on 03/23. From this text it should be crystal clear why a
router's network interface is legal to send an RS and also by sending
the RS, the CPE Rtr's network interface is not non-compliant to any IPv6
node req document.
"When a network interface on any router inits itself and performs any
"address acquisition", the network interface of the router is acting as
a host. According to RFC 4861, section 4.1, the text says that hosts
send RS to solicit an RA quickly."
The only recent item to debate from you is now RFC 4191. Again, on this
front Ole articulated it very nicely and I agree with him. If one has
routing, why do we want RFC 4191 in the CPE Rtr document? I have also
asked in the past to please give us one compelling reason to make RFC
4191 get into the CPE Rtr document. What particular option from RFC
4191 do you want to use by the CPE Rtr?
