Define IPv6 address on interface

First, an IPv6 address with subnet and the corresponding zones must be entered on the interface on which IPv6 is to be "spoken". This IP determines the range in which the DHCP pool is located:
Configuration at menu → Network →Network Configuration / edit Interfaces / Tab IP Addresses
An IP address can be entered directly in the click box, in this example »2001:DB8::1/64

The DHCPv6 address pool for this subnet is set up in the menu → Network →Network Configuration tab DHCP Pools.
The button Add Pool starts the wizard.
In step 1 a unique name for the pool, as well as the start and end address must be specified.
The name is freely selectable, pool start and end address are addresses from the previously defined subnet.
