 One important note about completing this basic DHCPv6 support - aside from IPv6 fragmentation and proper handling of IPv6 extension headers, IPv6 support is now "​functionally complete"​ in gPXE. Hurrah! :) One important note about completing this basic DHCPv6 support - aside from IPv6 fragmentation and proper handling of IPv6 extension headers, IPv6 support is now "​functionally complete"​ in gPXE.

 +==== Day 6 (July 16) ====
 +
 +I implemented the changes to settings.h today. This has gone very well so far:
 +<​code>​26711 2957.453307 2001:​44b8:​1::​6 2001:​44b8:​7222:​a50:​20c:​29ff:​fe54:​c23d DNS Standard query response AAAA 2001:​470:​1f07:​121b::​1</​code>​
 +
 +That's an AAAA response to gPXE querying "AAAA flash6.etherboot.org"​ - all over IPv6! The nameserver was obtained via DHCPv6.
 +
 +I still need to implement some way for DHCPv6 to get enough information out of a router solicitation to make an address assignment globally routable, but that won't take too long at all. I think I can even do it without having to change too much of the existing router solicit code.
