  1. IPv6 uses the link-local addresses as the next-hop for routing entries so there is no need to configure a “global” IPv6 address.

  2. The major differences:

    MCT - MTU is 1480, less overhead, supports only a single passenger protocol, mode is ipv6ip.

    GRE - MTU is 1476, more overhead, supports multiple passenger protocols, mode is gre.

  3. Rene, I tried using the following lab without configuring a global IPv6 address but it would not work until I configured the global IPv6 address. I’m going to continue to play with this to see if I can figure it out, but in the event I don’t can you tell me if there’s something else I have to do to get this to work with the link-local addresses?


  4. It has. Thank you very much for your reply!
