14.3. Debian Linux

Following information was contributed by Stephane Bortzmeyer <bortzmeyer at nic dot fr>

  1. Be sure that IPv6 is loaded, either because it is compiled into the kernel or because the module is loaded. For the latest, three solutions, adding it to /etc/modules, using the pre-up trick shown later or using kmod (not detailed here).

  2. Configure your interface. Here we assume eth0 and address (3ffe:ffff:1234:5::1:1). Edit /etc/network/interfaces:

iface eth0 inet6 static
        pre-up modprobe ipv6
        address 3ffe:ffff:1234:5::1:1
        # To suppress completely autoconfiguration:
        # up echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/autoconf
        netmask 64
        # The router is autoconfigured and has no fixed address.
        # It is magically
        # found. (/proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/accept_ra). Otherwise:
        #gateway 3ffe:ffff:1234:5::1
  

And you reboot or you just

# ifup --force eth0
  

and you have your static address.
