DHCPv6 is the version of the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) for Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) networks. In addition to stateless address autoconfiguration in IPv6, DHCPv6 provides an alternate solution to assign addresses, name servers and other configuration information in a manner similar to DHCP for IPv4.
