This makes me think, what is the real difference between getting an IP
first time and renewing it? In IP4 getting an IP is broadcast, renewing
is going directly, not passing relays.
I don't off the top of my head remember for IP6, but two situations
could be relevant:
- renewal and initial requests go different paths and only one is
- renewal and initial request have to go same way but ISP expects them
to be separate so the correct path is not implemented.
