1.IPv6 Ping Test
The following window is used to Ping an IPv6 address.
To view this window, click Administration > Ping Test > IPv6 Ping Test, as shown below:
This window allows the following parameters to be configured to ping an IPv6 address.
Target IPv6 Address:Enter an IPv6 address to be pinged.
Interface:The Interface field is used for addresses on the link-local network. It is recommended that the user enter the specific interface for a link-local IPv6 address. For global IPv6 addresses, this field may be omitted.
Repeat Times:Enter the number of times desired to attempt to ping the IPv6 address configured in this window. Users may enter a number of times between 1and 255.
Size:Use this field to set the datagram size of the packet, or in essence, the number of bytes in each ping packet. Users may set a size between 1 and 6000 bytes. The default setting is 100 bytes.
Timeout:Select a timeout period between 1 and 99 seconds for this Ping message to reach its destination. If the packet fails to find the IPv6 address in this specified time, the Ping packet will be dropped.
Source IPv6 Address:Tick the check box and enter the source IPv6 address of the ping packets. If specified, the IPv6 address will be used as the packets’ source IPv6 address that ping6 sends to the remote host.
2.IPv6 Neighbor Settings
IPv6 neighbors are devices on the link-local network that have been detected as being IPv6 devices. These devices can forward packets and keep track of the reachability of routers, as well as if changes occur within link-layer addresses of nodes on the network or if identical unicast addresses are present on the local link. The following two windows are used to view IPv6 neighbors, and add or delete them from the Neighbor cache.
The following window is used to view and configure current IPv6 neighbors of the Switch.
To view this window, click Administration > IPv6 Neighbor > IPv6 Neighbor Settings, as shown below:
Interface Name:Enter the Interface Name of the device for which to search IPv6 neighbors. Click Find to begin the search.
Neighbor IPv6 Address:Enter the IPv6 address of the neighbor of the IPv6 device to be searched. Click Find to begin the search.
State:Users may also search by running state of the IPv6 neighbor. Tick the State check box and choose to search for Static IPv6 neighbors or Dynamic IPv6 neighbors. Click Find to begin the search.
Neighbor IPv6 Address:Displays the IPv6 address of the neighbor device.
State:Displays the running state of the corresponding IPv6 neighbor. The user may see six possible entries in this field, which are Incomplete, Stale, Probe, Reachable, Delay, or Static.
Link Layer MAC Address:Displays the MAC address of the corresponding IPv6 device.
Port:Displays which port learned the IPv6 address of the neighbor device.
Interface:Displays the interface name associated with this IPv6 address.
VID:Displays which VLAN learned the IPv6 address of the neighbor device.
