[ovs-dev] [PATCH ovn] Honour router_preference for solicited RA

Gabriele Cerami gcerami at redhat.com
Sat Jun 6 11:24:25 UTC 2020


Replies to router solicitation follow a different flow than periodic RA.
This flow currently does not honour the router_preference configuration.

This patch modifies the flow to honour the flag, and send
router preference indications in the reply RA following RFC4191
specifications
