ipfw is blocking router solicitation in FreeBSD

by A__A__0   Last Updated October 18, 2017 15:00 PM

I'm trying to get a basic IPv6 setup working on FreeBSD 11.1 and I can't seem to allow IPv6 traffic.

# ipfw list | head -n 1
00001 allow ip6 from any to any

then I run

# rtsol $iface

and I observe that all the traffic that appears in tcpdump -i $iface ip6 also appears in tcpdump -i ipfw0 ip6 (i.e. the traffic is blocked, since I only use log on deny rules), and no IPv6 information is assigned to $iface.

What am I doing wrong?
