Description Jason Vas Dias 2005-08-22 13:14:20 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #144585 +++

Description of problem:
(Just copying from the link)

"I manage to get the prefix for the client router which i saw from the 
 debug message, but I didn"t see any modification done to /etc/radvd.conf 
 by the dhcp6c program. I suppose it should modify the range of the 
 available IP addresses according to the assigned prefix." 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up dhcpv6 with correct prefix
2. restart dhcpv6 (server) and radvd
3. start dhcp6c on a client to get address
Actual results:
radvd will give you different prefixes than dhcp6

Expected results:
radvd and dhcp6 should agree on what to give the clients

Additional info:
There is also a patch provided on the url mentioned:
 in line 116 of radvd_token.l, 
     (before) : if (!strcmp(yytext, dhcp6_if->ifname))
     (after)  : if (strcmp(yytext, dhcp6_if->ifname))
