High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Radvd, the Router
Advertisement Daemon, is an open-source software product that
implements link-local advertisements of IPv6 router addresses and
IPv6 routing prefixes using the Neighbor Discovery Protocol (NDP)
as specified in RFC 2461. The Router Advertisement Daemon is used
by system administrators in stateless autoconfiguration methods of
network hosts on Internet Protocol version 6 networks. When IPv6
hosts configure their network interfaces, they broadcast router
solicitation (RS) requests onto the network to discover available
routers. The radvd software answers requests with router
advertisement (RA) messages. In addition, radvd periodically
broadcasts RA packets to the attached link to update network hosts.
The router advertisement messages contain the routing prefix used
on the link, the link Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU), and the
address of the responsible default routers.
