Description

There appears to be an issue with dpinger when the IPv6 link-local address for a native DHCPv6 connection changes.

When a PPPoE session drops, the link-local IPv6 address of the default gateway at the ISP's end changes. Unfortuntaely, dpinger is still attempting to ping the previous IPv6 link-local address and does not automtically update to the new one. This results in a perpetual "pending" blue box on the pfSense router's home page. The errors can be seen in the log files.
