Good and bad news about MAC OSX 10.7 on IPv6

MAC OSX 10.7 is in the market now.  In terms of IPv6 improvement, it can now support RDNSS and when working with SLAAC, it can configure IPv6 address and get DNS resolvers from RADVD.  The bad news is OSX 10.7 still does not provide a genuine DHCPv6 client.  I must mention that not all organisations will adopt auto-config due to security concern and in that case DHCPv6 is the only available option to get IPv6 addresses.

Apple should have given out  DHCPv6 client program to its MAC OSX a long time ago.  What is the diffculty !!
