IPv6 - DHCPv6 Relay Agent Interface Properties - General Tab

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

DHCPv6 Relay Properties

 

Dialog box element Description

Relay DHCP packets

Specifies whether DHCPv6 messages are relayed between DHCPv6 clients on the subnet to which this interface is attached and DHCPv6 servers.

After you select this check box, you must configure the DHCPv6 server addresses in the DHCPv6 Relay Agent Properties dialog box.

Hop-count threshold

Type a value for the maximum number of DHCPv6 relay agents that will handle DHCPv6 relayed traffic. You can also click the arrows to select a new setting. The default value is 4 hops. The maximum value is 16 hops.

Elapsed-time threshold (centi-seconds)

Type the number of seconds the relay agent waits before forwarding DHCPv6 messages. You can also click the arrows to select a new setting. The default value is 3200 centi-seconds.

This option is useful when you want a local DHCPv6 server to respond first, but if the local DHCPv6 server does not respond, you want to forward messages to a remote DHCPv6 server.
