The thing is in my environment no manually interference is possible since
it would be going as bundled package.so was trying to dhcp approach.

One way I can think is create raw socket on eth0 in my application  with
dhcpv6 solicit packet received from client  send to tap0 interface where
dhcp server is running..
What's your view?
