DHCP options are used to convey network and host configuration information to the hosts attached to a network. Some networks may wish to configure their routers to advertise these same pieces of information, and might use IPv6 Router Advertisements do distribute these parameters. This document defines a generic neighbor discovery option for carrying DHCP options. This option is carried over IPv6 Router Advertisements.
