 #  DHCP server
In a VM must use the Legacy adapter, or it would refuse to get a static
address, and DHCP will refuse to attach to interfaces with dynamic address.

# how to shut up the DHCP authorization
reg add HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\DHCPServer\Parameters /v DisableRogueDetection /t REG_DWORD /d 1
# and reboot afterwards

# DNS Server
If configuring itself as a server, configure a remote zone for ipv6 ::1
