hmm my test goal was to reach an global ipv6 ip "behind" a router with an

one of my main problems was that i forgot to enable ipv6 forwarding,..
this lead to a wtf followed by a short "can i ping the nexthop?", and jep i
forgot the -i, and so on,..

now my A-B-C setup #0 works fine A can reach the global ipv6 ip of C and
vice versa #1

all my routes use link-local ip of the nexthop, and successfully specify a
source-ip aswell, (i configured the global ipv6 to the lo device *G)

so sorry for the noise, (i now think) we can filter routes to ipv6
link-local-adresses completely

regards Markus

a has 2.6.x, B and C 2.4
B has only link-local adresses
