NAME

       dhcpy6d - MAC address aware DHCPv6 server

SYNOPSIS

       dhcpy6d [-c file] [-u user] [-g group] [-r yes|no] [-d duid] [-G]

DESCRIPTION

       dhcpy6d  is  an  open  source  server for DHCPv6, the DHCP protocol for
       IPv6.

       Its development is driven by the need to be able to  use  the  existing
       IPv4 infrastructure in coexistence with IPv6.  In a dualstack scenario,
       the existing DHCPv4 most probably uses  MAC  addresses  of  clients  to
       identify  them.   This is not intended by RFC 3315 for DHCPv6, but also
       not forbidden.  Dhcpy6d is able to do so in local network segments  and
       therefore  offers  a  pragmatical method for parallel use of DHCPv4 and
       DHCPv6, because existing client  management  solutions  could  be  used
       further.

       dhcpy6d comes with the following features:
        * identifies clients by MAC address, DUID or hostname
         *  generates addresses randomly, by MAC address, by range or by given
       ID
        * filters clients by MAC, DUID or hostname
        * assigns multiple addresses per client
        * allows one to organize clients in different classes
        * stores leases in MySQL or SQLite database
        * client information can be retrieved from database or textfile
        * dynamically updates DNS (Bind)
        * supports rapid commit
        * listens on multiple interfaces

OPTIONS

       Most configuration is done via the configuration file.

       -c, --config=configfile
              Set the configuration file to use. Default is /etc/dhcpy6d.conf.

       -u, --user=user
              Set the unprivileged user to be used.

       -g, --group=group
              Set the unprivileged group to be used.

       -r, --really-do-it=yes|no
              Really activate the DHCPv6  server.  This  is  a  precaution  to
              prevent larger network trouble.

       -d, --duid=group
              Set   the  DUID  for  the  server.  This  argument  is  used  by
              /etc/init.d/dhcpy6d.

       -G, --generate-duid
              Generate DUID to be used in config file. This argument  is  used
              to  generate  a  DUID for /etc/default/dhcpy6d. After generation
              dhcpy6d exits.
