Whatever the IoT device is, is has to be just an appliance, like the

The nice thing about IPv6 is it's design to automagically assign addresses.

You mean like DHCP does for IPv5?


Ummm... I haven't seen much IPv5 lately. ;-)

IPv6 can create link local addresses entirely on it's own or build a
SLAAC address after receiving a router advertisement. DHCP requires a
server to manage the addresses, SLAAC does not.
