Hello everyone,
I am really struggling in order to make working my DHCP server with the 
option 64 - AFTR_NAME - required for the implementation of the DS-Lite 
network I am building right now.

My dhcpd.conf is really simple and it includes this line:

option my-option code 64 = string;

subnet6 2001:100::64 {
option dhcp6.name-servers 2001:100::1;
option my-option aa:11:22:33;

The problem is that the client - which requests the option 64 - does 
not receive it in the DHCP packet incoming (checked with Wireshark),  
the option 23 (DNS) in indeed inside the packet but the 64 not. Surfing 
in internet I read this doc :


Which lives empty the line for the ATFR_NAME then I was wondering ... 
is it possible to configure this option in the DHCP Server 4.1-ESV-R4 ? 
If not do you know a DHCP Server I can use in a Linux environment for 
that purpose ?

Thanks  a lot from a exhausted guy :-)
