Re: [netbsd4.0]could you tell me why NetBSD did not send link-local NS when NetBSD rebooted.

I used a cross cable to connect them between netbsd and monitor device(linux). I think the issue is from NetBSD or my netbsd device. I think my boot messages did not show up for wm0, is it correct ?

I can get global NS,but could not get link-local NS
I used "tcpdump -i eth0 -s 4096 -w netbsd.dump" , eth0 is my monitor device network interface.

sounds like Linux, so it's a different machine. How did you connect it?

Neighbour solicitations are sent to an address-specific multicast group, so they're not necessarily received at all switch ports. The best method
to capture would be with an oldstyle 10 MBit non-switching hub in between.
