 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
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:1575341 (1.5 MB)  TX bytes:72571 (72.5 KB)

<aside> can you find out where i work from above ? ;)

have fun...
