On FreeBSD, what does 'route -n monitor' tell you about the content of
the routing messages? Just this moment I ran that on my NetBSD tunnel
concentrator, and this RTM_NEWADDR message appears to show a correct
got message of size 124 on Sat Mar 17 13:07:18 2007
RTM_NEWADDR: address being added to iface: len 124, metric 0, flags:
ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff gre20001 2002:40c6:ff0c:1::1 2002:40c6:ff0c:1:20c:42ff:fe0d:2e68
It is possible that NetBSD's and FreeBSD's routing messages are not alike.
