Re: ipv6 running

i have my ipv6 running

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:0C:29:44:E7:18
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          inet6 addr: fe80::20c:29ff:fe44:e718/64 Scope:Link
but now how can i make my ipv6 ip ping able from other computer or from
localhost ?

Make sure a ping6 utility (from the inetutils-ping or iputils-ping Debian packages) is installed on the host that sends the ping.

From the local host :
$ ping6 ::1  # loopback
$ ping6 -I eth0 fe80::20c:29ff:fe44:e718  # link-local unicast

From a host on the same LAN :
$ ping6 -I <iface> fe80::20c:29ff:fe44:e718  # link-local unicast
$ ping6 -I <iface> ff02::1  # link-local all nodes (broadcast)

where <iface> is the name of the sender's interface connected to the LAN.

The next step is to allocate a global or site-local IPv6 address to the interface. :-)

I remind you that the IPv6 mailing list would be more appropriate for this topic.
