Technical Summary
  The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) provides a standard method of 
  encapsulating Network Layer protocol information over  
  point-to-point links.  PPP also defines an extensible Link Control  
  Protocol, and proposes a family of Network Control Protocols  
  (NCPs) for establishing and configuring different network-layer  
  This document defines the method for sending IPv6 packets over PPP 
  links, the NCP for establishing and configuring the IPv6 over PPP  
  and the method for forming IPv6 link-local addresses on PPP links. 
  It also specifies the conditions for performing Duplicate Address 
  Detection on IPv6 global unicast addresses configured for PPP 
  links either through stateful or stateless address
