Hi, expert:

I am using the dnsmasq in DHCPv6 Stateless mode. Based on the sniffer trace, I saw my DHCPv6 client solicit optional information, but dnsmasq replied with nothing. The log showed “no address available”….Anything I did wrong?

In addition, I saw in the man page that there is another way to configure stateless mode by using “—dhcp-range=::,static”. Is it the same?
