    short questions you can understand

    question 1 : stateless autoconfig means link-local addresses all time?

    question 2 : stateful autoconfig means site-local add. ?

    question 3 : for link-local add. to "complete" configuration should we need a router ?

    As far as I know the answers are:
    No, No and No.

    first one maybe no !

    but second one stateful means configuring addresses depending on a device such as a DHCP server
    but while performing this what type of address we use ? (site-local ? link-local ? )


    third one is OK

    If you read the docs on DHCPv6 you will see that it can behave like the v4 version, where "no IP address" is a possible starting point.

    After a quick perusal of the RFC I see that in fact the starting point is a link-local address on the client side, and a multicast on the server side.
