The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6 (DHCPv6) has been
extended with a Leasequery capability that allows a requestor to
request information about DHCPv6 bindings.  That mechanism is limited
to queries for DHCPv6 binding data updates prior to the time the
DHCPv6 server receives the Leasequery request.  Continuous update of
an external requestor with Leasequery data is sometimes desired.
This document expands on the DHCPv6 Leasequery protocol and allows
for active transfer of real-time DHCPv6 binding information data via
TCP.  This document also updates DHCPv6 Bulk Leasequery (RFC 5460) by
adding new options.

This document is a product of the Dynamic Host Configuration Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
