Description

On a residential IPoE (not PPPoE) broadband line, a BNG will often require a subscriber to send a DHCPv6 SOLICIT in order for it to be authenticated on to the ISP's network.

Currently pfsense uses rtsold which waits for an RA to be received before calling the rtsold_<iface>_script.sh which in turn triggers dhcp6c. As the ISP's BNG never sends an RA, this causes a stalemate with the ISP and no IPv6 PD is delegated.
