This specification extends DHCPv6 so that a DHCPv6 Relay Agent can dynamically indicate end host connectivity to a DHCPv6 Server. This information is also triggered by any change in connectivity type provided to the host. The DHCPv6 server uses this information as an input to its decision-making about configuration parameters to be conveyed to that host.
