Use this tab to specify the Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) configuration that you want to be applied to clients that connect to a remote virtual private network (VPN) server by using this connection profile.

Setting Description

Server assigns addresses

Specifies that the client is configured dynamically by the server when it connects. If the addresses of the DNS servers on your VPN-accessible network change, then you only need change the configuration on the server providing this information to the clients. All clients receive updated information the next time they connect.

All clients use these addresses

Specifies that the client is configured with the DNS server IP addresses entered in the text boxes below this selection. You can specify both a primary and secondary DNS server.

If you use this option and then later change the addresses of the DNS servers, you must change this profile, recompile it, and then redistribute it to all of your clients.

Make this connection the client's default gateway

Specifies that the client's default gateway IP address is changed to that of the VPN server whenever this profile connects. After this change, the client directs all non-local subnet traffic over the VPN.
