I think it would be nice to describe networking configuration in systemd environment. I've been able to configure simple Network Manager setup, but faced w/ problems while trying to make bonding work. After that I tried to configure net-misc/netctl, but I didn't manage to get it working as well. So it would be very useful to have this outlined somewhere in wiki. --Webknjaz (talk) 16:48, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Webknjaz , the goal of the Handbook is not necessarily to support all things systemd. We have a dedicated Systemd article for those wishing to proceed down the systemd path. This is mentioned in this section of the Handbook. Also, you can check upstream systemd documentation as well. --Maffblaster (talk) 02:31, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Network dependencies for netifrc

Talk status
This discussion is done as of August 28, 2018.

According to openrc,

  • rc_need_br0 is deprecated.
  • Please use rc_net_br0_need instead.

This section needs to be updated. -- Rage (talk) 16:13, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip, Lucas Ramage (Rage) . Looks like this was updated by Brian Evans (grknight) a while back. Closing discussion. --Maffblaster (talk) 20:26, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

IPv6 DHCP configurations

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

Sometimes we need to use DHCP to get IPv6 addresses, particularly in containerized environments. 'dhcpv6' has been a netifrc option for nine years. Can we update the Handbook to include it along with some usage examples? --Rhombus (talk) 21:57, 20 April 2022 (UTC)

While I am not opposed to this idea, it should be noted that dhcpcd can also get IPv6 addresses at the same time as IPv4. A 'dhcpv6' configuration option for netifrc is not needed in that case. --Grknight (talk) 12:58, 21 April 2022 (UTC)
