IPv6: stateless autoconfiguration / manual configuration

    Question

  • Hi,

    i have a problem with windows7 and IPv6...

    I'll configure an static IPv6-Address to the client.

    If I add the entry in the GUI, and run ipconfig after that, i get the following output:

    Ethernet-Adapter LAN-Verbindung:
    
    Verbindungsspezifisches DNS-Suffix:
    IPv6-Adresse. . . . . . . . . . . : 2003:ff:ff:ff::2
    IPv6-Adresse. . . . . . . . . . . : 2003:ff:ff:ff:211:d8ff:fe38:1275
    temporary IPv6-Adresse. . . . . . : 2003:ff:ff:ff:695a:9ca6:84a:fa99
    Linl Local IPv6-Adresse . . . . . : fe80::211:d8ff:fe38:1275%11
    IPv4-Adresse . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.3.2
    Subnetzmaske . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
    Standardgateway . . . . . . . . . : 2003:ff:ff:ff::1
    fe80::20f:90ff:fe7b:44a1%11
    192.168.3.1

    (It's a german windows, i translated the important things)

    The Client add automatically more than one IPv4-Addresses... But I would only have one IPv6-Address (2003:ff:ff:ff::2) configured.

    I don't want the temporary IPv6-Address, the Linc-Local IPv6-Address, and the IPv6-Address configured automatically from the Client.

    Do you know how to disable or remove this Addresses?

     

    Thank you for your help.

    Greetings

  • Hi,

     

    The resulting IPv6 address, based on this random interface identifier, is known as a temporary address. Temporary addresses are generated for public address prefixes that use stateless address auto configuration. Temporary addresses are used for the lower of the following values of the valid and preferred lifetimes:

     

    1. The lifetimes included in the Prefix Information option in the received Router Advertisement message.

     

    2. Local default values of 1 week for valid lifetime and 1 day for preferred lifetime.

     

    After the temporary address valid lifetime expires, a new interface identifier and temporary address is generated.

     

    For more information, please refer to the following article:

     

    Using Windows Tools to Obtain IPv6 Configuration Information

     

    If you still would like to disable it, please type the following commands in Command Console:

     

    netsh interface ipv6 set privacy state=disable

     

    Thanks,

    Novak

  • Hi Novak,

    is it also possible to get rid of dynamic adres "IPv6-Adresse. . . . . . . . . . . : 2003:ff:ff:ff:211:d8ff:fe38:1275"?

    Thanks

  • Just switch of router discovery. This will prevent the client from sending Router Solicitation messages. Thus the client won't get an dynamic/automatic assigned ip addresse. To do so execute the following statement from an elevated command line window:

    netsh interface ipv6 set interface "Local Area Connection" routerdiscovery=disabled

    Hope that helps

  • Is there a way for a client to automatically get routes if you turn off Router Discovery?
