IPv6 Extention Headers - Need test programs

All,

I would like to know if anyone has tested various different IPv6 extension headers with any IPv6 test programs.

The MS ping6.exe has an option -r which enables the routing header extension, but would like to see more of the options being used as I am evaluating IPv6 in a very small way :)

Kind regards,

Ken

Re: IPv6 Extention Headers - Need test programs

What is the exact requirement of this ipv6 extension header and test programs in your application.If your need can be mentioned,then it will aid me in providing u with some more relevant options instead of flooding u with all informations.

Re: IPv6 Extention Headers - Need test programs

Sam,

Thx for the help,

I would just like to be able to generate the following extenstion headers from a router (say extended ping) or a test program so I can see the use of the speficic headers and how they influence IPv6 in our lab environment.

Out of the following

Hop-by-Hop Options header

Destination Options header

Routing header

Fragment header

Authentication header and Encapsulating Security Payload header

Upper-Layer header

The only one I can seem to generate is the router header from windows XP ping6.exe

Please exuse the IPv6 address

This is purley for evaluation purposes and is not a system issue as such.

If there is an IPv6 test executable that can tell the IPv6 stack to utilise certain IPv6 options (thus using various extention headers) that would help me in my quest.

Kind regards and many thx,

Ken
