Re: conntrack thinks that ICMPv6 Echo reply to ICMPv6 Echo request sent to IPv6 multicast address is INVALID

I think that your *problem* is...

When you ping to all nodes, the target address is one, but the
response is other (the same occur in ipv4 when you ping multcast
address). The conntrack table cant map the real nodes in this type of
request. So, to conntrack view its *invalid*!

INHO, to do this i think that you need allow icmp for individual
address before REJECT.
