That's great news Lennart.
I think busybox has a reasonably new implementation, but it will be
great to have a solid/current daemon for desktop users.
It would be nice if the linux distributions pick this up so we can
have ip4ll as standard.
One thing I'd like to note (something I picked up from the busybox
mailing list), is that if you allow the dhcp client to kill autoipd
when it sets a routable ip address, it's possible that current tcp
transmission taking place with the ip4ll address will just be cut. A
possible resolution for this was to start the ip4ll daemon on an ip
alias for the same interface that the dhcp client is trying to obtain
an address for, and then just leave it running there after the
routable address is set (It seems that the routable address is
selected over the ip4ll address automatically?). Do you have any
thoughts on this?
