Welcome

Welcome to SLAAC and DHCPv6!

SLAAC and DHCPv6 are dynamic addressing protocols for an IPv6 network. So, a little bit of configuring will make your day as a network administrator lot easier. In this module, you will learn how to use SLAAC to allow hosts to create their own IPv6 global unicast address, as well as configure a Cisco IOS router to be a DHCPv6 server, a DHCPv6 client, or a DHCPv6 relay agent. This module includes a lab where you will configure DHCPv6 on real equipment!
