  1 odhcpd - Embedded DHCP/DHCPv6/RA Server & Relay
  2 
  3 ** Abstract **
  4 
  5 odhcpd is a daemon for serving and relaying IP management protocols to
  6 configure clients and downstream routers. It tries to follow the RFC 6204
  7 requirements for IPv6 home routers.
  8 
  9 odhcpd provides server services for DHCP, RA, stateless and stateful DHCPv6,
 10 prefix delegation and can be used to relay RA, DHCPv6 and NDP between routed
 11 (non-bridged) interfaces in case no delegated prefixes are available.
 12 
 13 
 14 ** Features **
 15 
 16 1. Router Discovery support (solicitations and advertisements) with 2 modes
 17    server:      RD server for slave interfaces
 18    a) automatic detection of prefixes, delegated prefix and default routes, MTU
 19    b) automatic reannouncement when changes to prefixes or routes occur
 20 
 21    relay:       RD relay between master and slave interfaces
 22    a) support for rewriting announced DNS-server addresses in relay mode
 23    
 24 2. DHCPv6-support with 2 modes of operation
 25    server: stateless, stateful and PD-server mode
 26    a) stateless and stateful address assignment
 27    b) prefix delegation support
 28    c) dynamic reconfiguration in case prefixes change
 29    d) hostname detection and hosts-file creation
 30 
 31    relay:       mostly standards-compliant DHCPv6-relay
 32    a) support for rewriting announced DNS-server addresses
 33    
 34 3. DHCPv4-support
 35    server: stateless and stateful mode
 36 
 37 4. Proxy for Neighbor Discovery messages (solicitations and advertisements)
 38    a) support for auto-learning routes to the local routing table
 39    b) support for marking interfaces "external" not proxying NDP for them
 40       and only serving NDP for DAD and for traffic to the router itself
 41       [Warning: you should provide additional firewall rules for security]
 42 
 43 
 44 ** Compiling **
 45 
 46 odhcpd uses cmake:
 47 * To prepare a Makefile use:  "cmake ." 
 48 * To build / install use: "make" / "make install" afterwards.
 49 * To build DEB or RPM packages use: "make package" afterwards.
 50 
 51 
 52 ** Configuration **
 53 
 54 odhcpd uses a UCI configuration file in /etc/config/dhcp for configuration
 55 and may also receive information from ubus
