IPv6 Addresses for a Router

The interfaces on an IPv6 router are assigned the following unicast addresses:

  • A link-local address for each interface
  • Additional unicast addresses for each interface (which could be a site-local address and one or multiple global addresses)
  • The loopback address (::1) for the loopback interface

Additionally, the interfaces of an IPv6 router are assigned the following anycast addresses:

  • A Subnet-Router anycast address for each subnet
  • Additional anycast addresses (optional)

Additionally, the interfaces of an IPv6 router are listening for traffic on the following multicast addresses:

  • The node-local scope all-nodes multicast address (FF01::1)
  • The node-local scope all-routers multicast address (FF01::2)
  • The link-local scope all-nodes multicast address (FF02::1)
  • The link-local scope all-routers multicast address (FF02::2)
  • The site-local scope all-routers multicast address (FF05::2)
  • The solicited-node address for each unicast address
  • The multicast addresses of joined groups
