Nothing restarting it, afaik. I do have a /etc/ppp/dhcp6c-script:


IP=$(ifconfig pppoe0 | awk '/inet6/ {print $2}' | cut -d / -f 1)
route change -inet6 default "$IP" || route add -inet6 default "$IP"
sleep 2 && /etc/rc.d/rtadvd reload

And /etc/rtadvd.conf:


I've commented out the SIGHUP, I forget why I added that - lost to the
mists of time. Alternately, I see rtadvd has a -C option, but that sounds
wrong. I'll see what happens with it commented out.
