IPv6 Prefix Problem with Windows Server DHCPv6

Wed Nov 07, 2018 7:14 pm


I have a MikroTik with a PPPoE connection for WAN with a static /48 prefix which I then split into my various networks of /64. It has the following IPv6 configuration, which allows a workstation/device to get an IPv6 address from the Microsoft DHCPv6 server on the same VLAN.

Windows PCs, iOS devices, Macs all work perfectly and receive a single IP from the DHCPv6 server, setup a /64 prefix and can router traffic with IPv6 fine.

The problem is Linux machines, various distributions and even Raspbian on a Raspberry Pi; they get an IP but they have a /128 prefix.

If i turn on autonomous then the machines auto-configure with the several IPv6 addresses (with the correct /64 prefix) and work perfectly, however I wanted to use stateful DHCPv6.

Normal behavior.

See this: ... -in-ubuntu

Also, when I look at my iOS devices and Mac's, their DHCPv6 assigned IPv6 addresses all show /128.
