      Description

      This user story is to spend the time to investigate use of DHCPv6 for getting an IP address and a subnet prefix in order to scope the effort for doing this with user story NGFW-12230.

      As an Untangle Administrator, I want to be able to use DHCP to get a IPv6 address and subnet prefix so that I can use Untangle with prefix delegation and have more control over the addresses that are assigned.

      Acceptance criteria

      • **NGFW can use use DHCPv6, in addition to using SLAAC

       

      Request is the most popular feature requested from feedback.untangle.com. Some of the reasons for using DHCPv6 over SLAAC are

      • it provides more control to the administrator over the addresses that are assigned
      • it give the administrator a way to keep addresses more private
      • it gives the ability to use prefix delegation to specify a range of addresses for internal networks
