Hmm, not easy.

Look in the log for lines that look like

DHCPv4-derived IPv6 names on ........

which should occur after a reconnect with a different address which
causes new DHCP address ranges to be constructed.

After that happens, dnsmasq will take a guess at the IPv6 addresses that
hosts will assign themselves, based on the network address and the MAC
address of the host (transformed into EUI-64) It then starts to ping
those addresses, and when it gets a reply, it will log

SLAAC_CONFIRM(interface) <address> <hostname>


and start using the address/name in the DNS.

Once confirmed, the addresses remain valid until the DHCPv4 lease it's
based on expires or goes though init-reboot state or the MAC address or
interface it's accessible by changes.

The only other thing that will delete these addresses in a new address
appearing and a new dhcp range being created, hence it's interesting to
look at what happens in the logs after each of those events.



Cheers,

Simon.
