Hello Simon,

With RA/SLAAC, i have a dibbler client running receiving the prefix via
DHCPv6 and distributing it via RA.
Can dnsmasq be configured to run as DHCPv6 client too?

At the moment not, i'm using dnsmasq vor DHCPv4 and DNS
I have no DHCPv6 server running (neither dnsmasq or dibbler or
something else)

I've seen this which pointed me to the proposed syntax.
