I'd like to ask your opinion on the following (standard) scenario:

The DHCPv6 client notices, that and address has expired.
It proceeds to remove the address from the interface.
At the same time, the address was used in as long TCP
(or any stream) connection(like a video-conference or file
transfer). The address gets removed, the connection breaks
down, the user goes mad :)))

In the spec, it says that the client should "notify upper layers".
So, in real world, what do I do? There is no way I can
reassign open application sockets to new addresses. They will break
down, won't they?

How is this handled?


PS: Sorry if this is an idiotic question, but I really have a problem with
