DHCPv6 route manager

Snoop DHCPv6 replies containing Prefix Delegation information and insert routes in the routing table.


  • Python 3 (tested, may work in Python 2)
  • tshark, command line tool from Wireshark

This program must be run as root in order to manipulate the routing table.

Sample invocation: ./d6rm.py eth0

Known issues

  • All routes will disappear if the machine is rebooted. They will be re-added when the clients check back in.

Future work

  • Run as daemon
  • Logging
  • Known server filtering to avoid spoofers filling the routing table
