There is no DHCP for IPv6.
Which part of that you do not understand?

You indeed do not need a DHCPd for IPv6, as it features auto configuration.
Your router just has to advertise itself properly on the LAN.


Anyways, there IS a dhcpv6 server and client, and it possible to use that.
Given you have a RedHat based system, following configuration should work:

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-eth0
IPV6INIT=yes
DHCPV6C=yes

/etc/sysconfig/network
NETWORKING_IPV6=yes

Oh, and beware that there is a bug in RH:
If the IPv4 address is static or not specified at all (means no DHCP), it will not start the IPv6 dhcp6c either. It's both or none.

You'd need to edit /etc/sysconfig/networking-scripts/ifup-eth to fix that

If you still want a dhcpv6 server, check this howto:

Works fine here. I did test that in a virtual centos 5.2 machine.

You may need a 4to6 tunnel, I use http://www.sixxs.net/ at home.

Not sure if it matters, but do you have a real IPv6 address?
