yes apart from ping6, you can use:
1. wireshark/ethereal for seeing ND messages on the wire
2. if possible, setup ISATAP in your lab-network. ubuntu does have
a isatapd, so should other distributions.
3. once you have (2) setup, update your resolver to do quad-A
queries by default i.e. 'option inet6'. if you use google's DNS, you should
be able to see dancing turtle at kame.org
for example, i have the following
is0 Link encap:IPv6-in-IPv4
inet6 addr: 2001:420:5401:1:200:5efe:4067:9c63/64 Scope:Global
inet6 addr: fe80::200:5efe:4067:9c63/64 Scope:Link
UP RUNNING NOARP MTU:1280 Metric:1
RX packets:1352 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:872 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:1575341 (1.5 MB) TX bytes:72571 (72.5 KB)
<aside> can you find out where i work from above ? ;)
In the beginning was the lambda, and the lambda was with Emacs, and Emacs
was the lambda.
