RFC 3736, "Stateless Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Service for IPv6", April 2004

Source of RFC: dhc (int)

Errata ID: 3796

Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Section 5.2 says:

   Client message: sent by a DHCP relay agent in a Relay-forward message
                   to carry the client message to a server (section 20)

   Server message: sent by a DHCP server in a Relay-reply message to
                   carry a response message to the relay agent (section
                   20)

It should say:

   Relay Message: sent by a DHCP relay agent in a Relay-forward
                  message to carry the client message to a server or
                  sent by a DHCP server in a Relay-reply message to
                  carry a response message to the relay agent (section
                  20)

Notes:

The correct name for the option carries in the Relay-forward message is "Relay Message". That option is shared by both Relay-forward and Relay-reply messages to carry a DHCPv6 message from or to (respectively) a DHCPv6 client.

I've marked this errata as "technical" because it might have an impact on implementations.
