Situation is as follows:

1. Not a gui bug from my part.
2. ICMPv6 stats weren't updating because no gui code yet.
3. ICMPv6 reporter not receiving anything.
4. Ethereal is showing ICMPv6 error reports... but these are encapsulated
inside IPv4 packets. (Tunneling ?!?)
5. GUI bugs caused by stack/drivers ?

I wonder if encapsulated has anything to do with it... later I test a
simpler example/code to see if it can receive icmpv6's at all

Bye,
Skybuck.

Ok,

I tried a simple icmpv6 receiver test...

It can't receive the tunneling icmp errors.

I have no idea how to receive those at the moment.

Maybe Windows XP x64 doesn't support it or something...

Bye,
Skybuck.

Windows seems to have some issue's with this:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/944135

"
The recvfrom function stops responding when you use the sendto function in
the IPv6 raw socket to send an ICMP packet and then use the recvfrom
function to receive ICMP responses on a Windows Server 2003-based computer
"

(I am not sending any IPv6 raw stuff or so... just normal IPv6 stuff)

Probably more buggies in there !

Bye,
Skybuck.
