Hi all,

I have a basic question. How do I ping an IPv6 address on a Windows, Linux or Huawei device?

Thank you!

Hello Sprout,


Windows:

ping -6 ipv6.google.com   //ping a Hostname

ping 2001::1  //ping an IPv6 address

ping FE80::15%4   //To ping a link-local address, you need to specify the network interface index. (%4 indicates ping using the network interface index 4.)


Linux

ping6 ipv6.google.com

ping6 FE80::1%eth0   //%eth0 indicates ping using the network interface eth0.


Huawei

ping ipv6 host/address   // To ping a local address, you need to add the -i parameter to specify the local outbound interface.
