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.

Hi Renato, please see my comment in ticket # 9324. Maybe these two issues are related?

This problem should not happen in this case if you check the option "Use IPv4 connectivity as parent interface". Could you please re-test with the next round of snapshots?

Can you provide more details on how to replicate the issue? Is it related only to the PPPoE link? Can you provide the PPPoE client setup details to replicate the issue?

Before the fix I just unplug WAN cable and plug it again and gateway moved to Pending status forever

No more reports but it's not happening anymore on my home router, so I believe it's safe to say it's resolved.
