dhcp6c flag to stop release on SIGTERM
« on: April 07, 2016, 04:44:55 am »
We have come across an issue that is causing a few problems. Our ISP does not give us a static PD, the PD is however 'sticky'.

Now it appears that dhcpc6 on getting a SIGTERM will send a release message and the server will do so. The problem is that when re-booting pfSense, more often than not a new PD will be given. A hard-reset stops this behaviour and the PD is kept, but a hard reset is not always the best option.

This is not a bug, this is a request, I would look at it myself but I have so far been unable to get GIT to give me the source for dhcp6c with all the up to date patches in place. My idea is to add a parameter to the start of dhcp6c say -x, which stops the SIGTERM release being sent.
