Hello all,

I'm trying to replace the DNS/DHCP of my FritzBox home router with dnsmasq.


For IPv4 everything seems to work fine, i.e. when clients request an IPv4 address, dnsmasq registers their hostnames, so name resolution for local machines works.

But it does not seem to work for IPv6. I want the clients to do SLAAC but still dnsmasq should serve AAAA records for local hosts if asked for. If I understood correctly, then dnsmasq will only register the hostnames for which it receives a DHCP request. Does this require the hosts to request an IP address? Or will the hostnames be added to DNS also if just the DNS server information is requested?

So I probably should configure what is called stateless DHCPv6:

------------------------------------
no-resolv
server=8.8.8.8
server=8.8.4.4
server=2001:4860:4860::8888
server=2001:4860:4860::8844

domain=home.example.net
local=/home.example.net/
domain-needed
bogus-priv
expand-hosts
stop-dns-rebind

enable-ra
ra-param=high

read-ethers
dhcp-option=option6:dns-server,[fd00::]
dhcp-option=option6:domain-search,home.example.net
dhcp-range=::,constructor:lan,ra-names,ra-stateless

# This will tell DHCP clients to not ask for proxy information
# Some clients, like Windows 7, will constantly ask if not told NO
# https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/dhcp.dnsmasq#log_continuously_filled_with_dhcpinformdhcpack
dhcp-option=252,"\n"

log-async=10
log-dhcp
------------------------------------

However, I don't get dnsmasq to return AAAA records for local hostnames.
Is this configuration basically correct? Or am I missing something?


Best regards,
Robert
