In this guide, we will focus on adding static IPv6 connectivity to a host that already has IPv4 connectivity.
- A network that is IPv6 enabled
- A local network running a router-advertisement daemon
- A host to verify IPv6 connectivity
Static network configuration for IPv4 on illumos is done in /etc/hostname.adaptername. Here's an example using a vmxnet3 adapter:
It's good practice to do a reboot now; so you can check all services are coming up nicely, and the interface gets the correct addresses.
To test connectivity - we make use of the "ping"-command. It's a bit different than using it on e.g.: Linux, BSD,... In this case, we'll test against the local router at fc00::1
