A node may have support for communications using IPv4 and/or IPv6
protocols. Such a node may wish to obtain IPv4 and/or IPv6
configuration settings via the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
(DHCP). The original version of DHCP  designed for IPv4 has now
been complemented by a new DHCPv6  for IPv6. This document
describes issues identified with dual IP version DHCP interactions,
the most important aspect of which is how to handle potential
problems in clients processing configuration information received
from both DHCPv4 and DHCPv6 servers. The document makes a
recommendation on the general strategy on how best to handle such
issues, and identifies future work to be undertaken.
