You can also interpret the IPv6 route table by looking for specific details. Figure 2-3 lists individual IPv6 routes, which can be categorized as follows:
■ Routes with a 128-bit prefix length (for example, fe80::4c81:2382:92ad:130f/128) are host routes for a specific IPv6 destination. By default, only host routes for locally configured IPv6 addresses are in the IPv6 route table.
■ Routes with a 64-bit prefix length (for example, fe80::/64) are subnet routes for locally attached subnets
■ The ::/0 routes are default routes. No default routes are listed in Figure 2-3 .
■ The ff00::/8 routes are for multicast traffic .
