Pinging a Host in the IPv6 Test Lab by Using a Link-Local Address (Windows CE 5.0)
To verify the integrity of the routing infrastructure, you can ping a host using link-local addresses and then view the entries created in the neighbor and route caches.
To ping a host using link-local addresses
On the development system, perform the following steps:
If ROUTER1 is not running on the CEPC, on the Target menu, choose Attach Device.
You may have to restart the CEPC for the download to occur.
On the Target menu, choose CE Target Control.
To obtain the link-local address of the Subnet1 interface, in the Target Control window, type s ipconfig /d.
On CLIENT1, to obtain the link-local address and interface index, type ipconfig /d.
On CLIENT1, to ping the link-local address of ROUTER1, type the following command:
ping <ROUTER1 Link-Local Address>%<Interface index>
For example, if the link-local address of ROUTER1 is FE80::2AA:FF:FE9D:10C5, and the interface index for the network connection on CLIENT1 is 3, you would type the following command:
On CLIENT1, to view the entry in the CLIENT1 neighbor cache for ROUTER1, type the following command:
ipv6 –dnc*<CLIENT1 Interface Index><CLIENT1 IPv6 Address>*
On CLIENT1, to view the entry in the CLIENT1 route cache for ROUTER1, type the following command:
On CLIENT1, to view the entries in the CLIENT1 routing table, type the following command:
ipv6 –d –v rt
