I tried to learn what are nowdays available DHCPv6 client/server
Using the search engines I could only find
- KAME implementation for *BSDs: stateless DHCPv6, and they are not going
to improve it
- Widespread linux-related http://dhcpv6.sourceforge.net implementation
- Some traces of proprietary CISCO IOS and NEC implementations
(http://www.dhcpv6.org/ with only relay agent available for public)
- USAGI implementation which leads to a project which claimed himself
'dead'(http://www.linux-ipv6.org/links.html ->
- Signs of some Linux implementation (there is some gentoo related
stuff, config files in google).
- DHCPv6 support in HP-UX

It is quite strange for me, that only a few incomplete
implementations are present (yes, stateless IPv6 autoconfiguration
fulfils a lot of work instead of DHCPv6, and many people seem to be
satisfied with s-less autoconfiguration and router prefix
advertisement, but still...)
Later I found www.dfn.de/uploaded/DHCPv6.pdf and I understood that
it seems there are really only a few implementations.
Could anybody advertise anything in addition to the list above?
Thanks beforehand
