Abstract

   The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6 (DHCP) enables DHCP
   servers to pass configuration parameters such as IPv6 network
   addresses to IPv6 nodes.  It offers the capability of automatic
   allocation of reusable network addresses and additional configuration
   flexibility.  This protocol is a stateful counterpart to "IPv6
   Stateless Address Autoconfiguration" (RFC 2462), and can be used
   separately or concurrently with the latter to obtain configuration
   parameters.
