DNS in IPv6 RA

L2 Linker

I think it is time to start the first IPv6 only setups. What I missed in my testing setups was the DNS option in the RA (RFC 6106).

Has anybody IPv6 only setups routed via PA?

Hello Unibw,

You can find the list of IPV6 features supported, that are supported on this link.

Hope this helps.


L5 Sessionator

Currently it is not supported on the firewall. For now you can use DHCPv6 server in conjunction with SLAAC on the firewall.

However if you think this feature is going to be helpful in your environment that i would suggest that you get in touch with your Local Sales Engineer and request him to file a feature request on your behalf.

Hope this helps.

Thank you


In my opinion best practice should be to have both options available because some client OS implement DHCPv6, some implement ND RDNSS (rfc 6106) and some have both options.

Thanks for the answers.
