IPv6 Router Advertisements - Router Mode - Stateless DHCP



  • Under the Router Advertisements - Router Mode there are 6 choices:

    1. Disabled -- RADVD will not be enabled on this interface.

    2. Router Only -- Will advertise this router.

    3. Unmanaged -- Will advertise this router with stateless autoconfig.

    4. Managed -- Will advertise this router with all configuration through a DHCPv6 server.

    5. Assisted -- Will advertise this router with configuration through a DHCPv6 server and/or stateless autoconfig.

    6. Stateless DHCP -- Will advertise this router with stateless autoconfig and other configuration information available via DHCPv6.

    The Stateless DHCP mode is not mentioned in the Netgate documentation, so is this new? How is it different from Assisted (as far as flags)?



  • From my own testing today. "Stateless DHCP" seems to be the same as assisted but with the "Management" flag not set. My PC's seemed to not mind, but my Apple products work better with "Assisted".

    Your mileage may vary, but for me I still get best results with "Assisted".

    Which is exactly what the dropdown says?
