To test your understanding of IPv6 address autoconfiguration, answer the following questions. See Appendix D to check your answers.
- List and describe the states of an IPv6 autoconfigured address.
- What is the formula for calculating the amount of time an autoconfigured address remains in the deprecated state?
- How does a router obtain addresses other than link-local addresses?
- According to RFC 2462, what addresses are autoconfigured for LAN interfaces on hosts when duplicate address detection for the EUI-64-derived link-local address fails? What is the behavior for the IPv6 protocol for the Windows .NET Server 2003 family and Windows XP?
- A host computer is running Windows .NET Standard Server and is assigned the IPv4 address 172.30.90.65 on its single LAN interface. IPv6 on this computer starts up and receives a Router Advertisement message on its LAN interface that contains both a site-local prefix (FEC0:0:0:29D8::/64) and a global prefix (3FFE:FFFF:A3:29D8::/64). List and describe the autoconfigured addresses for all interfaces on this host.
