NAME

       dibbler-server - a portable DHCPv6 server

DESCRIPTION

       dibbler-server  is  a  portable  implementation  of  the  DHCPv6  server. It supports both
       stateful  (i.e.  IPv6  address   granting)   and   stateless   (i.e.   options   granting)
       autoconfiguration.  There  are  ports  available  for  Linux 2.4/2.6 systems as well as MS
       Windows XP and 2003. They are freely available under GNU GPL version 2 (or later) license.

SYNOPSIS

       dibbler-server [ run | start | stop | status | install | uninstall ]

OPTIONS

       run - starts server in the console. Server can be closed using ctrl-c.

       start - starts server in daemon mode.

       stop - stops running server.

       status - shows status of the server.

       install - installs server as a service. This is not implemented yet.

       uninstall - uninstall server service. This is not implemented yet.

EXAMPLES

       Let's assume simple case: server should provide clients located on the eth1 link with IPv6
       addresses from range 2000::100/120 and should have preference set to 7:

       iface eth0
       {
         preference 7
         class
         {
           pool 2000::100-2000::1ff
         }
       }

       Here  is  exmaple of server configured to work in a stateless mode (i.e. only options, not
       addresses are served). If client support option renewal, it should do so  once  in  a  500
       seconds:

       log-level 7
       log-mode short
       iface eth0 {
        stateless
        option dns-server 2000::100,2000::101
        option domain example.com, test1.example.com
        option ntp-server 2000::200,2000::201,2000::202
        option time-zone  CET
        option sip-server 2000::300,2000::302,2000::303,2000::304
        option sip-domain sip1.example.com,sip2.example.com
        option nis-server 2000::400,2000::401,2000::404,2000::405,2000::405
        option nis-domain nis.example.com
        option nis+-server 2000::501,2000::502
        option nis+-domain nisplus.example.com
        option lifetime 500
       }

       More examples can be found in the User's Guide.

FILES

       All   files   are   created  in  the  /var/lib/dibbler  directory.  Dibbler  server  reads
       /var/lib/dibbler/server.conf file. During operation, Dibbler saves various  file  in  that
       directory.  Log file is named client.log.

STANDARDS

       This implementation aims at conformance to the following standards:

       RFC 3315 DHCP for IPv6

       RFC 3319 SIP options for DHCPv6

       RFC 3646 DNS server options for DHCPv6

       RFC 3736 Stateless DHCPv6

       RFC 3898 NIS options for DHCPv6

       Also options specified in following drafts are implemented:

       draft-ietf-dhc-dhcpv6-opt-timeconfig-03.txt NTP and timezone options.

       draft-ietf-dhc-dhcpv6-opt-lifetime-00.txt Option renewal.

AUTHOR

       Dibbler was developed as master thesis on the Technical University  of  Gdansk  by  Tomasz
       Mrugalski  and  Marek Senderski. Currently Marek has not enough free time, so this project
       is being developed by Tomasz Mrugalski. Authors can be reached at thomson@klub.com.pl  and
       msend@o2.pl

SEE ALSO

       There  is  dibbler-client(8)  manual  page. You are also advised to take a look at project
       website located at http://klub.com.pl/dhcpv6/.  As far as authors know, this is  the  only
       Windows  DHCPv6  stateful implementation available. It is also one of two freely available
       under Linux. The other Linux implementation is available at http://dhcpv6.sourceforge.net,
       but it is rather outdated and seems not being actively developed.
