Stateless addresses are usually assigned to the print server under router control, and not by a server, such as a DHCPv6 server. However, the router can specify that other configuration be provided by a server.
The print server must receive periodic router advertisement messages. These messages contain one or more IPv6 prefix options, and they can specify 64–bit local subnets, or a default route. These prefixes are combined with a 64-bit host address derived from the print server’s MAC address to form the IPv6 stateless addresses configured on the print server.
