- Updated DHCPv6 spec file
parent 0c0ca2fd
# This is an example configuration file for DHCPv6 server in Kea.
# It demonstrates how user can specify values for Softwire options
# defined in RFC 7598.
# defined in RFC 7598 for Lightweight 4over6 architecture.

The S46 Rule option conveys a number of parameters:
<simpara><command>flags</command>, an unsigned 8 bits integer, with
currently only the most significant bit specified. It denotes whether
the rule can be used for forwarding (128) or not (0).
<simpara><command>ea-len</command>, an 8 bits long Embedded Address length. Allowed values
range from 0 to 48.</simpara>
<simpara><command>IPv4 prefix length</command>, 8 bits long; expresses the prefix length of the
Rule IPv4 prefix specified in the ipv4-prefix field. Allowed
values range from 0 to 32.</simpara>
<simpara><command>IPv4 prefix</command>, a fixed-length 32-bit field that specifies the IPv4
prefix for the S46 rule. The bits in the prefix after prefix4-len
number of bits are reserved and MUST be initialized to zero by the
sender and ignored by the receiver.</simpara>
<simpara><command>IPv6 prefix</command> in prefix/length notation that specifies the IPv6 domain
prefix for the S46 rule. The field is padded on the right with zero
bits up to the nearest octet boundary when prefix6-len is not evenly
divisible by 8.</simpara>
