Chapter 27. Implementing IPv6 Addressing on Routers

With IPv4 addressing, some devices, like servers and routers, typically use static predefined IPv4 addresses. End-user devices do not mind if their address changes from time to time, and they typically learn an IPv4 address dynamically using DHCP. IPv6 uses the same general mode, with servers, routers, and other devices in the control of the IT group often using predefined IPv6 addresses, and with end-user devices using dynamically learned IPv6 addresses.

This chapter focuses on the addresses configured on routers, while Chapter 28, “Implementing IPv6 Addressing on Hosts,” focuses on the addresses learned by IPv6 hosts.

Routers require unicast IPv6 addresses on their interfaces. At the same ...
