Hello Iliyan,

great to hear you're working with RIOT + LoWPAN radios! As you already have a basic setup with
link-local addresses working, the (most) tricky parts are done. To get started with ULAs or real
public/global IP(v6) addresses you could setup RADVD on the RasPi. RADVD is a router advertisement
daemon, which will answer Router-Solications (RS) by RIOT nodes. RADVD can announce an IPv6
prefix (ULA or public) to the nodes, which than can autoconfigure an IPv6 address.

Please checkout the following repository and the guides in its wiki, for further infos:

I can not test this with RIOT as BR, as I don't have a device that can fit the BR example app (my Bluepills are all 64kb, not 128kb).
