rdiscd - IPv6 Router Discovery and SLAAC Daemon =============================================== rdiscd is a daemon for performing IPv6 router discovery and stateless address autoconfiguration (SLAAC) in userspace. It provides greater flexibility and more functionality than the kernel's implementation. For example, rdiscd supports static interface IDs, where the advertised prefix is combined with a static suffix to form a complete address. It also supports RFC 7217 for generating semantically opaque interface IDs (aka "stable privacy addresses"). For more information, see <https://www.agwa.name/projects/rdiscd>. DEPENDENCIES libndp v1.2 or higher <http://libndp.org/> To build rdiscd, you need: * GNU Make * A C++ compiler supporting C++11 (e.g. GCC 4.7 or higher) * Development files for libndp BUILDING RDISCD Run 'make' and 'make install'. The following Makefile variables can be passed on the command line to 'make' and 'make install': PREFIX=/path Install to given path (default: /usr/local) ENABLE_MAN=yes|no Whether to build/install the man page (default: yes) ENABLE_IFUPDOWN=yes|no Whether to install ifupdown hooks (default: no) DESTDIR=/path Stage installed files under the given path instead of installing directly to the filesystem (intended for package building) Example: make PREFIX=/usr make install PREFIX=/usr DESTDIR=/tmp/pkgroot CURRENT STATUS The current version of rdiscd is 0.6, released on 2017-04-16. rdiscd aims to be bug-free and reliable, meaning it shouldn't crash or malfunction. In fact, it is used in production on several servers, desktops, and laptops. However, it has not yet reached maturity, meaning it is not as polished or featureful as it should be. It contains basic support for autoconfiguring addresses and the default gateway, but does not yet support route or DNS server advertisements.

DEBIAN PACKAGING See README.Debian for instructions on building the Debian package, which integrates nicely with /etc/network/interfaces. DOCUMENTATION See the rdiscd(8) man page (rdiscd.8 in this repo). CREDITS rdiscd was written by Andrew Ayer <agwa at andrewayer dot name>. rdiscd is inspired by the userspace SLAAC implementation in NetworkManager, and some code is based on the code found therein. rdiscd contains a SHA-256 implementation by Colin Percival. rdiscd would not be possible without libndp, by Jiri Pirko.
