Creating IPV6 Address

Creating IPV6 Address

Creating IPV6 Address

How can I create a new IPV6 address Manually?  Is there a step by step doc to create new IPV6 address.  

RE: Creating IPV6 Address

i would appreciate being told i am wrong so please verify but my thoughts are:

basically 2halves: network and interface portions.  if the address is stateful DHCP6 is used to create the whole adr.

If stateless the router does the network half.  the user can put any number into the interface portion tho.  use the 6byte mac or a random number, avoid sequential numbers (you need to create multiple addresses), well known addresses etc.

EUI-64 method example:
3bytes upper mac adr + 0xFFFE + lower mac address
i was looking with WireShark how the mac osx 10.4.11 does it and it seems close to the above, it scrambled the upper byte of the mac address from what i expected tho.

RE: Creating IPV6 Address

Are u talking abt creating a new brand ipv6 interface on the same adapter(or even a new adapter) which has an ipv4 address? If thats the case, its possible. You may want to use the netsh command.

Just google around and u can find the way! its pretty simple. Otherwise ping back n i can detail the process.
