IPv6 Router Solicitation
IPv6 uses an Extension Header.
A Router Solicitation w/ IPv6 looks like FF02::2
* Eight groups of
* four hexidecimal digits that
* represent sixteen bits =
* two octects
Ipv6 Router Advertisement
* Type 134
* Prefix length must be 64 bits (4 groups)
The below has the feeling of being directly copied from somewhere, but I'm not finding where.
For the purpose of applying an access list to a particular interface, the ipv6 traffic-filter IPv6 command is equivalent to the access-group IPv4 command. The direction in which the traffic is examined (in or out) is also required.
IPv6 address to MAC address resolution is performed through the exchange of ICMPv6 neighbor discovery packets comprised of neighbor solicitation and neighbor advertisement packets. Unless these packets are permitted on a router interface, the interface will not be able to perform MAC address resolution.
The original notes continue
* one to nearest comm model
* same address for multiple devices
* delivery of packets to the group interface closest to the sending device
EMPLOYERS: This is me reviewing concepts I have been tested on and passed in the past.
