DHCP6S(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		     DHCP6S(8)

NAME
     dhcp6s -- DHCPv6 server

SYNOPSIS
     dhcp6s [-c	configfile] [-Ddf] [-k ctlkeyfile] [-p ctlport]	[-P pid-file]
	    interface

DESCRIPTION
     dhcp6s replies to DHCPv6 client as	DHCPv6 server.	dhcp6s can give	the
     following information to clients.
     +o	 IPv6 prefixes for the requesting site
     +o	 Non-temporary IPv6 addresses
     +o	 A list	of the DNS server addresses
     +o	 DNS Domain Search List
     +o	 A list	of the NTP server addresses
     +o	 A list	of the SIP server addresses
     +o	 SIP Server domain name
     +o	 A list	of the NIS server addresses
     +o	 NIS domain name
     +o	 A list	of the NIS+ server addresses
     +o	 NIS+ domain name
     +o	 A list	of the BCMCS server addresses
     +o	 BCMCS Server domain name

     Command line options are as below:

     -c	configfile
	     Use configfile as the configuration file.

     -d	     Print debugging messages.

     -D	     Even more debugging information is	printed.

     -f	     Foreground	mode (useful when debugging).  Although	dhcp6s usually
	     prints warning, debugging,	or error messages to syslog(8),	it
	     prints the	messages to standard error if this option is speci-
	     fied.

     -k	ctlkeyfile
	     Use ctlkeyfile to store the shared	secret to authenticate the
	     communication with	dhcp6ctl.  The default file name used when
	     unspecified is /usr/local/etc/dhcp6sctlkey.  The default name is
	     intentionally same	as that	for dhcp6ctl so	that the server	and
	     the control command can share the file when dhcp6ctl controls the
	     server on the same	node, which should be the typical case.

     -p	ctlport
	     Use ctlport as the	port number listening on to communicate	with
	     dhcp6ctl.

     -P	pid-file
	     Use pid-file to dump the process ID of dhcp6s.

FILES
     /usr/local/etc/dhcp6s.conf	 is the	default	configuration file.
     /var/db/dhcp6s_duid	 is the	default	file to	store the server's
				 DUID.
     /usr/local/etc/dhcp6sctlkey
				 is the	default	key file to communicate	with
				 the control command.  See dhcp6ctl(8) for the
				 file format.
     /var/run/dhcp6s.pid	 is the	default	file that contains pid of the
				 currently running dhcp6s.

     (DHCPv6), RFC 3315, 2003.

HISTORY
     The dhcp6s	command	first appeared in WIDE/KAME IPv6 protocol stack	kit.

     The -n dnsserv command-line option	was obsoleted by introducing a config-
     uration file.

BUGS
     dhcp6s is incomplete and violates DHCPv6 protocol spec, in	several
     aspects.  To name a few:

     1.	  it does not assign temporary IPv6 addresses (nor will).
