You are more likely to get help if you show you have put forward some effort and are stuck, rather than asking to be hand fed information.

So answer these questions, what have you tried, what dhcp server are you planning on installing, how far have you gotten with installing said dhcp server, and have you looked at the config files, man pages, documentation for this particular product?

Cool Me too

I have tried googling how to enable DHCPv6 on me RHEL box with no avail. I have also tried installing Dibbler client. This installation effectivly disabled Stateles Auto-config, but did not enable DHCPv6, that is, I installed, rebooted and sniffed the boot sequence w/ wireshark. I saw DHCP for IPv4 packets but nothing for DHCPv6. The Link local address is active on the network, just not DHCP requests in v6. Any help or hints would be apprecated. Happy Holidays.

I tried looking for the folder in /usr/share/doc/dhcpv6-0.10/server6_addr.conf, but could not find the file you mentioned. I then tried to use the "more /usr/share/doc/dhcpv6-0.10/server6_addr.conf " in the command line with no avail. I am somewhat of a newbee on linux so I may have missed somthing obvious. If I do not have that file in there. should i put it in there or have i not been a diligent updater?
