[Bug 619332] Re: Fall-back mechanism failure


The problem is that the fall back mechanism doesn't work ether in my case, though I have 2 network interfaces, eth0 is the virtual bride to the default network and eth1 is the internal network.
The problem is that the first side (while pinging the second side) does send successfully the I1 packet and the second side recieves it and responds to it with an R1 but the first side never recieves that.

Status in Host Identity Protocol for Linux: New

Bug description:
If the hip daemon can't resolve an address with hip_map_id_to_addr, it tries to broadcast an I1 message using standard interfaces.

This fallback mechanism is in my and Renes opinion useless and should be stripped out.

The cause of failing in my particular case was that I mounted /etc/hip/hosts with fuse and the fopen function failed to open it, even though hipd had root rights.
