Defining IPv6 Neighbors Information

The IPv6 Neighbors Page enables configuring and viewing the list of IPv6 neighbors on device's IPv6 interface(s). The IPv6 Neighbor table displays the Link-Layer address of an IPv6 neighbor on the same link. This is used to verify the reachability of this neighbor. This is the IPv6 equivalent of the IPv4 ARP table. The list included in this screen is used to determine the device IPv6 route table (see IPv6 Routes Table Page).

On this page, you can view the neighbors that were detected automatically and configure manual entries. Each entry displays to which interface the neighbor is connected, the neighbor's IPv6 and MAC addresses, the entry type (static or dynamic) and the state of the neighbor.

To define IPv6 neighbors:

For Layer 2, click Administration > Management Interface > IPv6 Global Neighbors. For Layer 3, click IP Configuration > Management and IP Interface > IPv6 Neighbors. The IPv6 Neighbors Page opens.
