Router Advertisement Daemon
IPv6 has a lot more support for autoconfiguration than IPv4. But
for this autoconfiguration to work on the hosts of a network, the
routers of the local network have to run a program which answers
the autoconfiguration requests of the hosts.
On Linux this program is called radvd, which stands for Router
ADVertisement Daemon. This daemon listens to router solicitations (RS)
and answers with router advertisement (RA). Furthermore unsolicited
RAs are also sent from time to time.
radvd for Debian
radvd comes with a example configuration in
/usr/share/doc/radvd/examples/simple-radvd.conf that advertises
non-routable documentation addresses (see rfc3849) on eth0. For details of the
configuration file format see radvd.conf(5).
Furthermore, radvd needs IPv6 forwarding enabled; this can be set by
uncommenting the following line to /etc/sysctl.conf:
radvd.conf - configuration file of the router advertisement
This file describes the information which is included in the
router advertisement (RA) of a specific interface.
