Technical Summary This document specifies a Relay Agent Echo Request option for the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6 (DHCPv6). The option allows a DHCPv6 relay agent to request a list of relay agent options that the server echoes back to the relay agent. Working Group Summary This document is a product of the Dynamic Host Configuration Working Group of the IETF. Protocol Quality There are no known implementations of the protocol. However, the need for this option was identified by Comcast and Cisco during planning for deployment of DHCPv6 as a part of the DOCSIS 3.0 specification. Therefore, we expect Cisco and other vendors of equipment compatible with DOCSIS 3.0 to implement the option, and we expect Comcast and other cable service providers to use the option in their DOCSIS 3.0 deployments. No special reviews were performed or required. Jari Arkko has reviewed this specification for the IESG. A review was requested from the IP Directorate, and Brian Haberman reviewed the specification.
