Description

When selecting 'Assisted' mode for Router Advertisements, OSX clients use stateless autoconfig and do not obtain DHCPv6 addresses.

I was able to get the proper behavior[*] by manually editing /var/etc/radvd.conf so that both 'AdvManagedFlag' is 'on' and 'AdvAutonomous' in 'on' at the same time. When selecting 'Assisted' mode the 'AdvManagedFlag on;' line is removed from radvd.conf but should be present.

[*] OSX client gets DHCPv6 address for incoming connections and performs stateless autoconfig for RFC 3041 private addresses for outgoing connections.

According to my understanding the states should be:
Mode AdvManagedFlag AdvAutonomous
'Router Only' off off
'Unmanaged' off on
'Managed' on off
'Assited' on on

History

#2 Updated by Petri Oksanen over 7 years ago

This worked, but on build

Version 2.1-RC0 (i386)
built on Thu Jul 4 03:04:00 EDT 2013
FreeBSD 8.3-RELEASE-p8

I had to manually replace the services.inc from git to be able to get an address from Assisted DHCPv6

And also with

2.1-RC0 (i386)
built on Fri Jul 5 06:53:51 EDT 2013
FreeBSD 8.3-RELEASE-p8

I need to get services.inc from git and restart radvd before I can get an IPv6 address from assisted DHCPv6

It was pushed on master and not on RELENG_2_1, because of that you cannot see the change on 2.1-RC0 snapshots. I applied the commit on RELENG_2_1, so if should be fine on next snapshots. Let me know if it works.

#5 Updated by Petri Oksanen over 7 years ago

Yes, now it's working without having to update services.inc from git.
