RRAS DHCPv6 Relay Agent

Updated: December 16, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

The DHCPv6 Relay Agent relays Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) messages between DHCP clients and DHCP servers on different Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) networks. The DHCPv6 Relay Agent is compliant with RFC 3315.

Aspects

The following is a list of all aspects that are part of this managed entity:

Name Description

RRAS DHCPv6 Relay Agent Audits

The Routing and Remote Access service has determined that DHCPv6 Relay Agent audits generated an audit entry when a system event was executed successfully. These events confirm successful DHCPv6 Relay Agent operations.

RRAS DHCPv6 Relay Agent Enabling

The DHCPv6 Relay Agent is a Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP) relay agent that relays Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) messages between DHCP clients and DHCP servers on different IP networks. For each IP network segment that contains DHCP clients, either a DHCP server or a computer acting as a DHCPv6 Relay Agent must be enabled.

RRAS DHCPv6 Relay Agent Packet Discarding

The DHCPv6 Relay Agent is a Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP) relay agent that relays Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) messages between DHCP clients and DHCP servers on different IP networks. For each IP network segment that contains DHCP clients, either a DHCP server or a computer acting as a DHCPv6 Relay Agent is required.

If the DHCPv6 Relay Agent (IPBOOTP) is discarding packets, DHCP configuration with peer clients and servers might fail.

RRAS DHCPv6 Relay Agent Protocol Initialization

The DHCPv6 Relay Agent is a Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP) relay agent that relays Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) messages between DHCP clients and DHCP servers on different IP networks. For each IP network segment that contains DHCP clients, either a DHCP server or a computer acting as a DHCPv6 Relay Agent is required.

After the DHCPv6 Relay Agent (IPBOOTP) is initialized, the DHCP Relay Agent can relay DHCP/BOOTP requests and responses from different networks.

RRAS DHCPv6 Relay Agent Request and Response Operations

The DHCPv6 Relay Agent is a Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP) relay agent that relays Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) messages between DHCP clients and DHCP servers on different IP networks. The DHCPv6 Relay Agent relays DHCP/BOOTP requests and responses from different networks.

RRAS DHCPv6 Relay Agent Socket Operation

The DHCPv6 Relay Agent is a Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP) relay agent that relays Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) messages between DHCP clients and DHCP servers on different IP networks. For each IP network segment that contains DHCP clients, either a DHCP server or a computer acting as a DHCPv6 Relay Agent is required.

Socket operation for DHCPv6 Relay Agent (IPBOOTP) involves configuration of the DHCPv6 Relay Agent to receive packets from the neighboring DHCPv6 Relay Agent.
