#1297 new Bug / Defect

feature wish: IPv6 subnet delegation

Reported by: Gert Döring Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: release 2.7
Component: Installation Version: OpenVPN git master branch (Community Ed)
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:


Delegate not only single IPv6 addresses ("ifconfig-ipv6-pool" today) to clients, but whole subnets.

Inspired by a question on twitter, "how can I give each of my OpenVPN clients a /64". You can, by means of --client-config-dir or --client-connect, but having this built-in would be nice.

It needs pool handling on the server, and some sort of "what to do with that /64" logic on the client side - the client doesn't need it for its tun/tap interface (single IP from the transit network is sufficient), so it would need to be handed over towards "something" which does "something" to it (like: pass it to docker clients, use it to configure LAN interface for PCs behind routers, whatever).
