  1. Also, please show how to assign a unique local address?

    Thanks,

  2. You can configure it like this:

    interface fa0/0
    ipv6 address FE80::1 link-local

    Just make sure it starts with FE80 and don't forget "link-local" at the end.

  3. Hi AD,

    Link-local addresses are only used on the local link. These addresses are not routable and used only for things like neighbor discovery or to establish OSPF / EIGRP neighbor adjacencies and such.

    The idea behind IPv6 is that every device connected to the Internet should have a global unicast address. NAT/PAT for IPv4 were only "tricks" to get around the lack of available IPv4 addresses.

    On your own networks, you could use the unique local addresses in the fc00::/7 range. These are equal to IPv4 private range addresses.

  4. can you make a topic on how to read the opsv3 database? for example, in the following output:
    Net Link States (Area 0)

    ADV Router Age Seq# Link ID Rtr count
    1.1.1.1 305 0x80000002 8 2

    what is link id 8 referring to? is there a mapping to the link ip address?

  5. So we use an IPV4 Address for the Router-ID for IPV6 OSPF and EIGRP?
    Can you not use an IPV6 address for this?
