Invalid destination address

248	39.552283	fe80::224:8cff:fe1d:d43	::	ICMPv6	Neighbor solicitation for 2001:44b8:7222:a50::3 from 00:24:8c:1d:0d:43

Note the address of “::” as the destination, which is likely caused by the routing trying to send packets to the gateway (which is all zero, as this is just a link-local address).

It's obvious that I need to add some checks for destinations which are uniquely identifiable (eg, FF02::n). Perhaps an “if multicast, don't sub in a gateway” check?

HTTP Booting

Successful HTTP request (even though it ended in a 404) to an IPv6 HTTP server from one of my test machines.

Still need to do a fair bit of work on getting NDP working nicely and trying to avoid using a link-local address for all network access.
