IPv6 confusion

Thanks to all who responded with input about why DHCPv6 should have options for default routers and prefix information. We've published a draft defining these options, which will be discussed at the upcoming IETF meeting in San Francisco.

    A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

     Title : Default Router and Prefix Advertisement Options for DHCPv6
     Author(s) : R. Droms, T. Narten
     Filename : draft-droms-dhc-dhcpv6-default-router-00.txt
     Pages : 7

    In some IPv6 deployments, there is a requirement to communicate a
    list of default routers and advertised prefixes to a host through
    DHCP. This document defines DHCP options to carry that information.
