I can confirm that the ICMPv6 redirect when I communicate between a FBSD
box, and ::b6 (FBSD) is not generated by the router.
It only happens from my XP box. I'm going to try Vista from a colleagues
workstation to see the effect there.
I personally don't like it. Just adds overhead to the router. Hopefully
I track it down to a config issue at my end.
Hopefully someone else has a setup where this can be tested and
documented that requires minimal effort to do so, just so I can compare
Also, any other feedback as to how to troubleshoot this further from
someone who knows the innards of Windows better than I do (I'm purely a
FreeBSD person) would be great.
