Hello Gianluca,

Not sure if I can help with this one, but could you just clarify from where
these DHCPv6 packets arrive?
You mentioned IPv6 is disabled on the VM, therefore I assume these are
ingress packets, right?
If this is the case, then perhaps the stack just drops the ingress packets
(as it has no handler for them).
