I'm trying to configure dhcpd 4.0.0b1 for stateless DHCPv6, i.e. I want
to get an address by stateless adress autoconfiguration and the IP
address of my tftp server and the bootfile name from a DHCPv6 server.
So, what I want to do is, send an information-request and get a reply
with tftp-server and a filename.
I'm a bit confused about how to configure dhcpd with the appropriate
option settings though. There are the old DHCP options, DHCPv6 options
and docsis (cable labs) dhcp options.
RFC 3736  doesn't say anyting about TFTP server and filename options. Is
there really no way to do this with DHCPv6?
I found and old IETF draft "DHCPv6 Support for Remote Boot -
draft-ietf-dhc-dhcpv6-opt-rboot-00.txt"  but it expired in 2003.
It would be nice if somebody could give me a hint. Any ideas?
with kind regards
