Router Advertisement (IPv6)

The RADVD (Router Advertisement Daemon) is used for IPv6 auto-configuration and routing. When enabled, messages are sent by the router periodically and in response to solicitations. A host uses the information to learn the prefixes and parameters for the local network. Disabling this feature effectively disables auto- configuration, requiring manual configuration of the IPv6 address, subnet prefix, and default gateway on each device.

This page is available if you enabled Dual-Stack IP on the Setup Network page. If you did not do so, a message appears when you try to open this page.
