Copy the link local address from the command prompt (on PC1) and open PC2 and ping PC1 by pastingthe link local address from PC1.
6.Now we have verified that we can communicate with the link local addresses on PC1 and PC2.7.The router will not have automatic link local address (enabled). Router has IPv6 routing disabled by default. Configurations will need to be completed to get the router to operate in an IPv6 network.8.Open the router and go into the command prompt and type the following commands.9.Command Summaryipv6 unicast-routing: enables IPv6 unicast routing on the router.
