Ping and IPv

You can use the ping command to test connectivity to systems that use IPv6. To test the function of the stack, ping the local interface using the following command:

If that works, try pinging the local computer using its IPv6 address, rather than the localhost address. Use the following command to ping a link-local node:

ping address

Replace address with the link-local address of the other node. Next, try pinging a different host using the same format, replacing address with the IPv6 address of the remote node and optionally using -s to specify the source interface. See Table 15-13 for a list of additional command switches you can use with ping to test IPV6 connectivity.
