NAME

     dhcp6relay — DHCPv6 relay agent

SYNOPSIS

     dhcp6relay [-Ddf] [-b boundaddr] [-H hoplim] [-r relay-IF] [-s serveraddr] [-S script-file]
                [-p pid-file] interface ...

DESCRIPTION

     dhcp6relay acts as an intermediary to deliver DHCPv6 messages between clients and servers,
     and is on the same link as a client.  dhcp6relay needs command line arguments interface ...,
     which specifies the list of links accommodating clients.

     Options supported by dhcp6relay are:

     -d      Print debugging messages.

     -D      Even more debugging information is printed.

     -f      Foreground mode (useful when debugging).  Although dhcp6relay usually prints
             warning, debugging, or error messages to syslog(8), it prints the messages to
             standard error if this option is specified.

     -b boundaddr
             Specifies the source address to relay packets to servers (or other agents).

     -H hoplim
             Specifies the hop limit of DHCPv6 Solicit messages forwarded to servers.

     -r relay-IF
             Specifies the interface on which messages to servers are sent.  When omitted, the
             same interface as interface will be used.  When multiple interface are specified,
             this option cannot be omitted.

     -s serveraddr
             Specifies the DHCPv6 server address to relay packets to.  If not specified, packets
             are relayed to ff05::1:3 (All DHCPv6 servers).

     -S script-file
             Specifies the script file to be executed when dhcp6relay receives a RELAY-REPLY
             message from a DHCPv6 server.  Further detail of the script file syntax is available
             in dhcp6c(8)

     -p pid-file
             Use pid-file to dump the process ID of dhcp6relay.

FILES

     /var/run/dhcp6relay.pid  is the default file that contains pid of the currently running
                              dhcp6relay.
