 Subject:  RE: [m0n0wall-dev] native IPV6 needs dhcp6c

Hi Andy. 

Well.. the request is to put into the image what is neccessary to get native
Ipv6 going. I'm currently in a pilot for native IPv6 with prefix delegation
on unnumbered link organized by XS4ALL a major player here in NL. 

Integration is needed for wide-dhcp6-client and radvd might need pacthing.
The DHCP6 client needs a configuration file. Parameters should be set via
the GUI. Logging what goes on is essential as is a status display. ppp might
need extensions to send/receive IPV6CP. Also a unique but no-changing DUID
must be created (or kept) in the confuguration. I would advise a type 3
DUID; only based on MAC address, or a choice of all three  types. ;-)

I saw that it should be possible to use exec.php to add dhcp6c and config. I
did not go thru that all, though... I took another piece of (x86) hardware
and installed OpenWRT 10.03. Got that working today. Still, when monowall
becomes available, I will stay on that platform. OpenWRT is quite new to me.
It has a nice look and feel and there is a full commandline (ash in
busybox). I must say that it rocks.

I do not know how rigid the 8 Mb image size barrier is that you developers
seem to have set for yourselves. With the newer hardware it is hardly an
issue anymore imho. OpenWRT formats whatever extra space you have and uses
unionfs to overlap. So I have plenty of room on my 256 Mb IDE-Flashcard.
