Dumb IPv6 question... (Local IPv6?)

    Hi,

    I am running Vicktek's 2014. 1.3f build on an R7000; For this purposes of this question, the router itself isn't too relevant however.

    The other day, I installed openwrt on a tplink router that I had just for fooling around. I noticed that the tplink router (I set it up as dump AP, passing everything to the R7000) was ASSIGNING local LAN ipv6 address to the hosts! These hosts were showing up in its IPV6 hosts list. The reason I noticed this is that of course I had turned off dhpc as the R7000 handles that, but saw this, and had to turn of odhcp as well.

    I'm sorry for my lack of knowledge in ipv6. I've done a lot of googling, and have read KDB's thread on Tomato's ipv6 via dnsmasq.

    ANYWAYS, the question I have is this: Tomato currently allows for IPV6, but as far as I can tell, it basically takes the WAN (ISP/He/etc) IPv6 and "passes" to the local hosts. In my case, I just want Tomato to LOCALLY assign IPv6 to the hosts without anything coming from ISP etc. Similar to what I saw in openwrt.

    Reading KDB's posts, I believe I need to add custom dnsmasq of:

    dhcp-range=tag:br0,::1,::FFFF,constructor:br0, ra-names, 12h
    enable-ra

    Is this valid/true? If anyone can shed some light I'd really appreciate it...

    I think I've waited sufficient time for a bump...
    Any help / thoughts would be appreciated.
