Re: DHCP pool shared across multiple VLANs

It looks like there's a dchp server lease-script and maybe a binding-script (is this v6 only?) If you could pass the interface name to it, it could possibly add or remove the static route upon lease assign/deassign.

The important part IS the prefix length. '1234:1234::1' doesn't work, '1234:1234:1::1' and longer does work. At this point my testing is simply adding address like above to interfaces and pinging it locally to see if it works or not. #1 above doesn't, #2 above does.
