Ticket #174 (reopened defect)
ipv6 link-local address are not complete
|Reported by:||Tobu||Owned by:||Tobu|
When using avahi to get ipv6 addresses, the addresses in the fe80::/64 range should be suffixed with something like %eth0 to be usable. These "link-local" (in the ipv6 sense) addresses are specific to the interface where they are published.
Otherwise, tools like ssh won't be able to use these addresses; ssh justnexttome.local won't work.
Look for "scoped addresses" in this document: http://tldp.org/HOWTO/html_single/Linux+IPv6-HOWTO/#CHAPTER-SECTION-USING-API
