[Dnsmasq-discuss] Need help regarding: no address range available for DHCPv6

I'm having some problems enabling DHCPv6 on DNSmasq and I hope someone here
can help me.

My ISP has allocated me a LAN address in the /48 prefix range.
Specifically: 2001:d98:600e::/48. I have thus set eth1 (LAN side adapter)
to 2001:d98:600e::1 (with prefixlen 48).

In dnsmasq.conf I entered the following options:
dhcp-range=2001:d98:600e::2, 2001:d98:600e::500, 64, 12h

The following error appears in the log file: "no address range available
for DHCPv6 request via eth1".
And all my computers are not able to receive a DHCPv6 address.

If I assign the IPv6 address statically, my computers are able to access
the internet via IPv6.

I hope someone can help me with this problem.

Thank you and best regards,
