Ipv6 within the same VLAN

Hi,

If two servers are on the same VLAN, can they communicate and send traffic via ipv6 without the need of a router?

My understanding is the switch can forward traffic within the same VLAN.

I would like someone to confirm and explain more to me.

Thanks,

vnt

Re: Ipv6 within the same VLAN

Hi vnt,

You are right.

if two servers are on the same vlan, they can communicate with each other without a router. A switch can forward the l2 traffic within the same broadcast domain. ipv4 or ipv6 doesnt make any difference in this scenario.

Pls rate if it helps.

Rgs,

Jack
