Dear Giuseppe,

  In router end, i have configured like this,

Router#sh run int gi4/7

Building configuration...

Current configuration : 104 bytes
interface GigabitEthernet4/7
no ip address
ipv6 address 2001:DB8:2222:1018::73/64
ipv6 enable

and i gave the laptop ip as 2001:DB8:2222:1018::73..Now i can able to ping router end ip but not able to ping laptop ip..what to do?

also i gave ipv6 unicast-routing command globally..

Thanks for ur reply

Hello Senthil,

it  is the same as with IPv4: if a firewall is running on the PC you can typically ping from PC to router but you cannot do the opposite so I would look for firewall service on the PC

Hope to help
