5.5. Configuring IPv6 Settings

To configure IPv6 settings, follow the procedure described in Section 5.4, “Configuring IPv4 Settings” and click the IPv6 menu entry.
Method
Ignore — Choose this option if you want to ignore IPv6 settings for this connection.
Automatic — Choose this option to use SLAAC to create an automatic, stateless configuration based on the hardware address and router advertisements (RA).
Automatic, addresses only — Choose this option if the network you are connecting to uses router advertisements (RA) to create an automatic, stateless configuration, but you want to assign DNS servers manually.
Automatic, DHCP only — Choose this option to not use RA, but request information from DHCPv6 directly to create a stateful configuration.
Manual — Choose this option if you want to assign IP addresses manually.
Link-Local Only — Choose this option if the network you are connecting to does not have a DHCP server and you do not want to assign IP addresses manually. Random addresses will be assigned as per RFC 4862 with prefix FE80::0.
Addresses
DNS servers — Enter a comma separated list of DNS servers.
Search domains — Enter a comma separated list of domain controllers.
