I don't have time to double check, but i think it works as expected. I 
suppose you don't have global address on the interface you are forwarding 
the packets from (eth0), right?

link-address field name is a bit misleading. That is an address that 
allows indentification of the link, NOT link-local address (fe80...).

Also check relay log. I think there will be a warning about not being able 
to find global address.

Hope that helps. If not, send me relay-IfaceMgr.xml file. It is stored in
