about IPv6 PPPoE
I am curious about what you have tried. Can you tell me where
can I download PPPoE software to try the dial up? Do you really try PPPoE or
just PPP (not PPPoE) over p2p link?
I am confusing .........As I know, PPPoE must perform ARP and thus, there is
a field to carry IPv4 address in PPPoE protocol. Why does PPPoE(v4) not
need to be modified to support IPv6 ? IPv6 uses neighbor discovery to find
MAC <--> IPv6 address map. The protocol is over IP, not like ARP(v4). Is
that the reason why PPPoE need not to be modified for IPv6 ?
