[plug] DHCPv6

Hi List

I'm trying to configure dhcpv6 (stateful IPv6 autoconfiguration) and
I'm stuck. Maybe there's someone on the list who can help?

I've determined that the client sends the ICMPv6 Router Solicitation
message and that it arrives at the server, but the server doesn't

It works fine for providing DNS servers and such if I use radvd for
stateless address autoconfiguration, but I'd like to setup _stateful_
configuration to test that our devices operate correctly in this mode.

The problem seems to be that the server doesn't listen on the raw
interface (it does for IPv4), so it probably doesn't receive the icmp
messages. It does listen on UDP port 547 using IPv6 and it does claim
to listen on the correct interface at start-up.

Any ideas? I can post details if anyone is interested.
