MS/TP (Master-Slave/Token-Passing) is a contention-free access method for the RS-485 physical layer that is used extensively in building automation networks. This document describes the frame format for transmission of IPv6 packets and the method of forming link-local and statelessly autoconfigured IPv6 addresses on MS/TP networks.
