Good Morning all,
I have noticed some behaviour with assigning IPv6 using dnsmasq which
to me seems a bit strange and I wanted to bring it to your attention
in case it is not meant to be as such.
If I am running IPv6 DHCP range with ra-stateless and I have the
ra-enable option set my client machine is assigned two seperate IPv6
addresses from the same prefix.
A client machine would then receive the a Global IPv6 address on the
correct prefix comprising of its MAC address (with the obligatory
FFFE), but it would also be assigned a secondary Global IPv6 address
on the same prefix - although this one appears to be randomly
Even though both ra-stateless and ra-enable are set I would only
expect a single address to be assigned to anyone client.
