dhcpv6 server does not respond to client solicit message
Hello! This is my first post and I am a newbie at DHCPv6.
I am using Centos 5.1 and kernel version 2.6.18-53.e15.
I am trying to setup a DHCPv6 server and client (link-local only).
I used a simple configuration from
The client can send solicit messages, and using wireshark, I can see that the server can receive the packets send by the client.
However, the server does not respond with anything at all. The server is running fine, and there are no error messages in /var/log/messages.
here are the other config:
this is the output when I run netstat -lpntu | grep dhcp6s:
tcp 0 0 ::1:5547 :::* LISTEN 5663/dhcp6s
udp 0 0 :::547 :::* 5663/dhcp6s
also, according to wireshark output, the solicit message has a client identifier and no server identifier, so it should not be discarded.
what other things should I check? Please say what other information I should post. Thank you very much for the support!
