How to Plumb an IPV6 interface in Solaris

           Find the steps for  How to Plumb an IPV6 interface in Solaris.
STEP 1: Check for the available interfaces. The network card connected to the computer may have 2 or more network ports. To see the network port information go to /dev and search for the assigned interface names.
Example: If the network interface port is of type bge and if there are 4 ports available, then there would exist bge0, bge1, bge2 and bge3
STEP 2: Login as root user and execute the ifconfig command to plumb a new interface.
  1. $ su – root
  2. $ ifconfig bge1 inet6 plumb up
  a) €œbge1 € is the interface name
  b) €œinet6 € is the keyword used to signify that ipv6 address should be created
STEP 3: To verify if the IPV6 interface is created successfully execute the “ifconfig -a6 € command. This command would display only the interfaces that are configured as IPV6.
  $ ifconfig -a6
  bge1: flags=2100841 mtu 1500 index 11
              inet6 fe80::ad34:6fff:eodd:87a2/10
              ether ae:21:f3:0:6:e1
  The ipv6 address would be automatically assigned to the interface. If the computer is connected to the ipv6 capable router with appropriate configuration the ipv6 address may be assigned by the router and the computer would be ready to communicate with external world of ipv6 web.
