Hmmm. MS says otherwise: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/network/ipv6/ipv6faq.mspx
but it's in Vista. You can add it to BSD/Linux without too much trouble (are there good, bugfree implementations for those yet?)
Bugfree? Nothing is bugfree :)
but Mac is a problem for prospective DHCPv6 users because the network configuration mechanisms are fairly proprietary and DHCPv6 isn't likely to be supported any time soon.
Hmmmm. I have yet to play with the Mac Ipv6 support (typing this on a Mac now I should try in my lab later). What auto configuration mechanisms are you referring to? Bonjour? Isn't there an RFC or two for Zeroconf?
