• Hi all,

    when I enter ipconfig/all, it shows only its prefix.

    Is it possible to see whole ipv6(128-bit) assigned to interface?

  • What do you mean, "it shows only its prefix"?

    When you enter ipconfig /all you get something lije the following:

    Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::bd2b:94e7:ba33:7dac%8

    This is a 128-bit address (disregard the zone index after the %). Remember that the "::" part means "fill in whatever number of zeroes are needed between the two colons in order to complete the 128 bits for the address."

  • Hi

       If you configure manual ipv6 on interface with eui-64, and then run ipconfig/all, you will see only prefix of ipv6.

    I want to see whole 128-bit ipv6 in ipconfig/all output.

  • Hi,

    How about running below command:

    netsh interface ipv6 show address
