Hi,

After installing the patch file for mobile ipv6 and corresponding linux kenel version (ie mipv6-1.0-v2.4.26.tar.gz and linuix-2.4.26.tar.bz2 ), I am unable to start mobile-ip6:

/etc/init.d/mobile-ip6 start

The following error occur

"Starting Mobile IPv6: [FAILED]

Status : mip6_ha module is not installed

Steps regarding mip6_ha module are not stated and could not be found on the internet.

I would appreciate advise on how to activate the mobile ipv6. Thanks.

Using Linux Redhat 9.

regards,
Ven

Our configuration is similiar to the testcase as mentioned in;


http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Mobile-IPv6-HOWT...d.html#testcase

Having 1 pc configured as mobile node, 1 pc as a HA+Router and 1 pc as the AR.


Using the steps provided by the u/m link;


http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Mobile-IPv6-HOWT...ipv6.html#patch


We are able to patch the files linux-2.4.26.tar.bz2 and mipv6-1.0-v2.4.26.tar.gz and perform a

# cd /usr/local/src/mipv6-1.0-v2.4.22
# ./configure
# make && make install

by modifying the /usr/local/src/mipv6-1.1-v2.4.26/src/mipdiag.c file.

Modifications are;

#ifndef IFA_F_HOMEADDR
#define IFA_F_HOMEADDR 0x10
#endif
#ifndef IFA_HOMEAGENT
#define IFA_HOMEAGENT IFA_MAX+1
#endif

(We do not understand the above modification)

However, when we reach the step to start mobile-IP, we encounter an error;

# /etc/init.d/mobile-ip6 start
Starting Mobile IPv6: [FAILED]

Status

"mip6_mn module is not installed" error message appeared on the mobile PC/node


"mip6_ha module is not installed" error message appeared on the home agent PC/node



We would greatly appreciate if we can get advise on the a/m problem so as to get our mobile ipv6 started and running.Thanks.
