Configuring IPV6 for RedHat 7

Configuring IPV6  for RedHat 7:



Assuming we want to create a connection to work with eth1 :

#nmcli con add con-name eth1 type Ethernet ifname eth1


We can then check to see the created connection:

#nmcli con show


We then can assign the connection an IPv6 address:

#nmcli con mod eth1 ipv6.addresses fddb:fe2a:ab1e::c0a8:64/64


Make sure the interface is up:

#ifup eth1


Test Pingability:

#ping6 –I eth1 fddb:fe2a:ab1e::c0a8:64/64
