Re: ipv6 addressing on pc's

I think that depends on your OS.

As far as I can tell you always have only the link local address by default (at least on Solaris 10, Linux 2.6 & Windows XP). You will then get a unique local or global address if any other host is responding to either NDP or DHCPv6. Of cause you can add static addresses too if you like.
