Thumbs up [solved]UDP protocol failed, as well as IPv6. pkgsrc blocked because of ths(IMHO)

right into the installation I couldn't install pkgin because the UDP protocol wasn't working well : 'ping6: UDP connect: no route to host'
then after 'ftp: can't connect to '2001:470:1f05:3d::21:80'
At the first boot, I saw that my hostname wasn't set by default.
Can I set anything I want ? Because I am on a box with dhcp and (it says) support for ipv6.
Now, pkg_add echoes 'no packet found' for whatsoever I ask for,
ping google.fr works, but not ping6. It says too : UDP conect: No route to host.
I tried ping6 with linux mint on my laptop, it works well and the box says it provides support.
The result of rtsol re0 is : kernel is configured no to accept RAs.
I did not touch anything after the first boot.
I would like, in the end, use pkgin. In fact, I study computer science and I needed something that doesn't crash on my computer within thirty days after installation, something which I surprisingly didn't find for now.
My version is NBSD 6.1.4, for amd64
Thanks !

Disclaimers: 1) I don't use NetBSD, and 2) I don't use IPv6.

You have described a routing problem. The rtsol (router solicitation) program tells you that RAs (router advertisements) are not accepted.

The rtsol(8) man page for NetBSD says:
Quote:
Also note that rtsold will not be able to update the kernel routing tables unless sysctl(8) reports that net.inet6.ip6.accept_rtadv=1.
I recommend setting that sysctl to 1, and trying again.

Additionally, there is the NetBSD IPv6 Networking FAQ, which may help.

thank you for your fast answer. I did all this, and ping6 and rtsol works.
Need I write sysctl and so one on /etc/rc.conf or is already permanent ?
Now, pkg_add do not work more than early, so the problem probably wasn't ipv6.
It keeps saying that even firefox isn't here.
And the -vvvvv option does nothing. I can't find neither /usr/pkg/ on my filesystem.
I only have /usr/pkgsrc. Is is a bug ?
How to give it a server to connect to ?

The sysctl(8) man page says:
Code:
FILES
     /etc/sysctl.conf  sysctl variables set at boot time
You will need to edit the file. Refer to sysctl.conf(5) and to the NetBSD Network FAQ.

I'm unable to assist with pkgsrc issues, as I have never used it, or NetBSD. I can only refer you to the pkgsrc guide.

Everything's ok. pkgin is installed.
This post has fullfiled its aim !
Hail to the developper of pkgin, as it seems so much faster than APT.
