How to use colored prefixes ?

See the Prefix Coloring page for a detailed answer.

How do I set a dhcpv6 client ID ?

You can modify the netifd hnet protocol file (hnet/files/ in feeds before building or /lib/netifd/proto/ at runtime) in order to add a dhcp client id. You need to insert the following line:

json_add_string clientid "<clientid in base 16>"
  • Between json_add_string name “${interface}_4” and json_close_object for IPv4.
  • Between json_add_string name “${interface}_6” and json_close_object for IPv6.
