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 dial-up 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 change, then you only need change them on the server providing these to the client. 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 when this profile connects, the client's default gateway IP address is changed to the IP address of the remote dial-up server. After this change, the client directs all non-local subnet traffic over the dial-up connection.
