Synopsis

kea-dhcp6 [-v] [-V] [-W] [-d] [-c config-file] [-t config-file] [-p server-port-number]

Description

The kea-dhcp6 daemon provides the DHCPv6 server implementation.

Arguments

The arguments are as follows:

-v

Displays the version.

-V

Displays the extended version.

-W

Displays the configuration report.

-d

Enables the debug mode with extra verbosity.

-c config-file

Specifies the configuration file with the configuration for the DHCPv6 server. It may also contain configuration entries for other Kea services.

-t config-file

Checks the configuration file and reports the first error, if any. Note that not all parameters are completely checked; in particular, service and control channel sockets are not opened, and hook libraries are not loaded.

Documentation

Kea comes with an extensive Kea Administrator Reference Manual that covers all aspects of running the Kea software - compilation, installation, configuration, configuration examples, and much more. Kea also features a Kea Messages Manual, which lists all possible messages Kea can print with a brief description for each of them. Both documents are available in various formats (.txt, .html, .pdf) with the Kea distribution. The Kea documentation is available at https://kb.isc.org/docs/kea-administrator-reference-manual .

Kea source code is documented in the Kea Developer's Guide. Its online version is available at https://jenkins.isc.org/job/Kea_doc/doxygen/.

The Kea project website is available at https://kea.isc.org.

Mailing Lists and Support

There are two public mailing lists available for the Kea project. kea-users (kea-users at lists.isc.org) is intended for Kea users, while kea-dev (kea-dev at lists.isc.org) is intended for Kea developers, prospective contributors, and other advanced users. Both lists are available at https://lists.isc.org. The community provides best-effort support on both of those lists.

ISC provides professional support for Kea services. See https://www.isc.org/kea/ for details.

History

The b10-dhcp6 daemon was first coded in June 2011 by Tomek Mrugalski.

Kea became a standalone server and the BIND 10 framework was removed. The DHCPv6 server binary was renamed to kea-dhcp6 in July 2014.
