#26 closed defect (fixed)

link-local scoping in a NetLMM domain is undefined

Reported by: julien.ietf@… Owned by: julien.ietf@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: draft-ietf-netlmm-mn-ar-if Severity:
Keywords: Cc: netlmm@…


MN-AR interface spec does not says if packets sent to link-local addresses are forwarded by an AR, on the same link or from one link to another.

Proposed Resolution: Specify that AR SHOULD not forward packets sent to link-local addresses. This preserves the semantic of link local addresses, and avoid subsequent issues related to multi-link subnets.
