NAME

dhcp6c - DHCPv6 client daemon

 

SYNOPSIS

dhcp6c[-vfI] [-rall|<address...>] [-R<address...>] [-P<address...>] [-cpathspec]<interface>

 

DESCRIPTION

dhcp6cis an implementation of the DHCPv6 client.

Using DHCPv6 messages and DHCPv6 options,dhcp6cis used to request and configure IPv6 addresses and host network configurationinformation (e.g., DNS) for a network interface from the DHCPv6 server. It canalso be used as a requesting router to request and configure Prefix Delegationfor a subnet.

The assigned IPv6 addresses and prefixes are saved as/var/lib/dhcpv6/client6.leasesXXXXXX; this file is used to request the sameaddresses and prefixes from the DHCPv6 server. Eachdhcp6cclient has a client DHCP Unique Identifier (DUID); the DUID file is saved as/var/lib/dhcpv6/dhcp6c_duid.Thedhcp6cclient configuration is defined in /etc/dhcp6c.conf.

Interface names are specified according to your operating system'sconventions. On Linux, this is typically eth0, eth1, and so on.
