i want to share my experience (not yet successful ;)) with all the experienced people here, and my findings.. and based on them i have few questions,
I NOW know the meaning of link-local address.
Also, there is ALWAYS a Scope_ID for each type of ipv6 address on a single machine, that needs to be mentionted while pinging (ping6 in case of ipv6) from one ipv6_machine to another ipv6_machine.
Host A: fe80::20b:5dff:fe08:f5b3
Host B: fe80::216:36ff:fe2c:bcb2
2. ping6 -s HOST_A_LINK_LOCAL_IP_ADDR%SCOPE_ID HOST_B_LINK_LOCAL_IP_ADDR
ping6 -s fe80::20b:5dff:fe08:f5b3%5 fe80::216:36ff:fe2c:bcb2
NOW, to assign a Globale_IPV6 address, i used 2001:9fe:a:1::1 on microsoft machine, and
In my 3560 (being the layer3 switch), i configured following..
int#ipv6 address 2001:9fe:a:1::2 eui-64
I need to know, i till now what wrong have i done yet, because i am unable to get a ping response from the machine... :)
