How to Request IPv6 Resources and Support

NI&S does not currently manage allocation of IPv6 addresses; most hosts will by default automatically configure one or more IPv6 addresses using StateLess Address AutoConfiguration (SLAAC). However, should users wish to assign static IPv6 addresses, we have tools to assist NLs in allocating them and avoiding collision with other users.

The hostmaster will assign you an Organizationally Unique Identifier (OUI) which can be used in your IPv6 addresses. When you request an OUI, you will also be sent a list of randomly generated host suffixes with that OUI, that you can use on any subnet on-campus. 

IPv6 Prefix Delegation

NI&S will assign and route whole IPv6 prefixes on request. This service is still evolving. In the future, we will use DHCPv6 Prefix Delegation.

NAT64 is not a service we offer at this time
