    [IPV6] ADDRCONF: Optimistic Duplicate Address Detection (RFC 4429) Support. · 95c385b4
    Neil Horman authored
    Nominally an autoconfigured IPv6 address is added to an interface in the
    Tentative state (as per RFC 2462).  Addresses in this state remain in this
    state while the Duplicate Address Detection process operates on them to
    determine their uniqueness on the network.  During this period, these
    tentative addresses may not be used for communication, increasing the time
    before a node may be able to communicate on a network.  Using Optimistic
    Duplicate Address Detection, autoconfigured addresses may be used
    immediately for communication on the network, as long as certain rules are
    followed to avoid conflicts with other nodes during the Duplicate Address
    Detection process.
