There has been many changes in the code, including removal of a lot of unmaintained research extensions and loads of code clean ups. Also, the new binaries are built for latest ubuntu/fedora versions and support for old ones are discontinued.
The most important changes in the mobility code are related to triggering of the handovers, but this happened a while ago. By default, hipd triggers a handover when ICMPv6 replies inside the tunnel fail for some while. However, all handovers, including the ones occurring from handovers, are delayed for some seconds in order to wait for e.g. slow wireless interfaces to stabilize during WLAN authentication.
I am running binary version 1.0.6-4712 (note that the last digit of the version number is derived directly from the version control revision). I'd suggest to try it out. Baris is back in the project and he might be able to help if the problem persists.
Hi all, I have taken up again this issue, and I was wondering whether this bug has been fixed in the latest versions. I have been testing the handover in version 1.0.5 and it seems that it is still unsolved.

Both virtual machines have two ethernet interfaces configured, but eth0 is the only one that it is up. That is, oops has eth0 3ffe::2/64 and crash has eth0 3ffe::1/64 configured. I am testing handover with SSH connection and a video streaming. I have installed the SSH server and the video server on oops, that will act as a responder, and access to it from crash, which is the initiator. I perfectly see the base exchange and the data transmision ciphrated using ESP. I have tested soft handover in two different ways: 1.- Introducing the following lines: oops: sudo ifconfig eth1 up oops: sudo ifconfig eth1 inet6 add 3ffe::3/64 oops: sudo ifconfig eth0 downHi, This is a known "problem". I changed it some time ago, but it messed up someones test environment so it was changed back. This is what happens in the code: Eth1 is upped and its address is added everything is fine and then eth0 is downed and its address is removed as a response to netlink RTM_DELADDR. Now the code counts the addresses on the eth0 interface and notices that there is none and tries to 0-addr REAP. Notice the problem ;) Logically thinking what should happen: When an address is removed from the interface it should be checked that if it is the last address on the interface then look for other interfaces if there is something we can use. It is a simple fix, but as I said it was taken out because a test case where there was an interface with Internet connectivity and one that was only used for nfs. In that case the behavior was not what the tester wanted it to be and the fix was reverted. We have one guy who is working on a rewrite of the code on the experiences we have had with the mobility parts of the code. This problem is on the list also :)2.- Using the script handover.sh (/hipl--main--2.6/test/demo/) In both cases, the connection drops, and you are no longer connected with the SSH server neither the video server. With the video streaming it happens the same, the video gets 'frozen'. The routes are well defined. I find I little bit strange having a script (handover.sh) to automate the handover process and have no results using it.The script uses one interface and its just for testing purposes. Not sure of its usefulness to others than me :D Hope this helped you... BR, SamuIs this possible? What am I doing wrong? Any help will be appreciated. Regards, Nerea
