    IPv6 - How to enable and test/verify functionality

    NiMc_1688136

      Are there any extra steps required to enable IPv6 in WICED? I am new to IPv6 so I do not really know where to begin in order to test IPv6 functions.

       

      When my app starts up, either in FreeRTOS+lwIP or ThreadX+Netx_duo, i see the message

      IPv6 network ready IP: FE80:0000:0000:0000:BAD7:AFFF:FE28:B672 (or FE80::BAD7:AFFF:FE28:B672 in the lwip build)

       

      Should I be able to ping this address from a Windows PC on the same LAN? Ping returns Destination host unreachable. The PC is able to ping the module's IPv4 address.

       

      Do I need to run a DHCPv6 server on my LAN to provide an address? It does not look like my Netgear has a built in DHCPv6, are there any PC based servers?

       

      I am running WICED 6.1 with a CYW43907.
