How do I configure CDRouter for DHCPv6 prefix delegation?
CDRouter’s IPv6 add-on supports DHCPv6 Prefix Delegation (RFC 3633) on the WAN to dynamically assign an IPv6 prefix for the DUT to use on its LAN interfce(s).
The testvar dhcpv6WanAssignNextPrefix specifies a free prefix on the WAN used for renumbering tests. The testvar dhcpv6PDLatency defines the amount of time, in seconds, it takes the DUT to update its LAN side IPv6 settings when a new IPv6 prefix is learned on the WAN.
testvar dhcpv6WanEnablePD yes testvar dhcpv6WanAssignPrefix 3001:dddd:: testvar dhcpv6WanAssignNextPrefix 3001:ddde:: testvar dhcpv6WanAssignPrefixLen 48 testvar dhcpv6PDLatency 30
By default, the delegated prefix defined above may not include the DUT’s global WAN address. CDRouter will generate an error if the ipv6WanIspAssignIp testvar overlaps with the delegated prefix.
The DHCPv6 Prefix Exclude option (RFC 6603) specifically allows an exception to this rule and must be enabled in order for CDRouter to allow this configuration.
