Description Pekka Savola 2002-06-13 02:45:08 EDT
Doing like (even without IPv6 connectivity but IPv6 module loaded):

$ ping6 -I eth0 fe80::3
PING fe80::3(fe80::3) from fe80::202:b3ff:fe1a:e2bf eth0: 56 data bytes
From ::1 icmp_seq=1 Destination unreachable: Address unreachableFrom ::1
icmp_seq=2 Destination unreachable: Address unreachableFrom ::1 icmp_seq=3
Destination unreachable: Address unreachable
--- fe80::3 ping statistics ---
5 packets transmitted, 0 received, +3 errors, 100% loss, time 3999ms

Notice that there is no newline between errors.  This is different to what
happens with
IPv4 ping.  This was broken at an update from earlier versions of iputils.

It seems receive_error_msg() and parse_reply() in ping6.c are a bit out of 

This has been reported to upstream.
