Using RAdvD ( Route Advertisement Daemon ) to deliver automated IPv6 Addresses and Default Gateway

By April 17, 2013September 12th, 2022No Comments

In this video we install and configure the RAdvD on openSUSE 11.4 to advertise the default gateway and address IPv6 address prefix to the network. We use Windows 7 as the client and test connectivity to remote IPv6 Networks. You will soon learn that with IPv6, even though we can use DHCPv6 there is no need. The network is advertised and clients append their MAC Address. The reality is that IPv6 networking is not all about complexity and 128 bits written in hex. If we focus on the difficulties rather than the advantages IPv6 can bring we will miss the point. I am hoping this video helps in your IPv6 deployments.
