Re: ICMPv6 error messages



 In your previous mail you wrote:

   ICMPv6 RFC states that, ICMPv6 error message MUST NOT be sent 
   as result of receiving a packet sent as link-layer multicast or 
   broadcast. But why should IPv6 be concerned about the Link-Layer
   address?
   
=> simply to avoid some trivial DoS attacks...
