Hi all,
                I have DHCP V6 Client ,Relay and server.

Client as windows 7 PC.
Relay as remote which has more than 1 interface.
Server as another remote which has only one interface.

>From relay I have connected to client and server.

Eth0 interface to client and Eth1 interface to server.


But my problem is client getting the ipv6 address of a server while issuing ipconfig command in Windows7 Pc.

IPV6 address of Server  : 3ffe:501:ffff:100::/64
IPV6 address of Relay    : 3ffe:501:ffff:101::/64

But the client is getting IPV6 address 3ffe:501:ffff:100::/64 of a server. So there is no relay operation actually done here.

What would be the reason for this error??

Is there any different procedure to test this functionality.

Otherwise I should change anything in the address..

Please let me know.

Ameen S
