IPv6 Relay Agent (Dibbler)

Iím currently experimenting stateful configuration under netkit, with Dibbler (v1.0.1) and Radvd (v1.1), (very old releases).
There is my topology :



Dibbler-server & Radvd running on R1, dibbler-relay on Relay, and dibbler-client on host1.

DHCPv6 Server and Relay-agent services seems to work fine, host1 get his global adresses with /128 prefix.
Relay get his default gw from Radvd.

However, dibbler-relay doesn't forward routers advertisements.
And I'm stuck here, I don't know if I should configure forwarding and Radvd on the relay (client interface).
Dibbler doc doesn't talk too much about this topic.

Another point, is it necessary to configure global adresses on Relay interfaces ?

You need configure radvd on relay to tell it how to handle advertisement.
