NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       ip6_setup - IPv6 configuration program

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  ip6_setup  utility  allows  you to configure the IPv6
       networking software on your system.

       To run ip6_setup, enter the  following  command  and  then
       answer the questions: # ip6_setup

       You  must  know  your  Internet  Protocol Version 6 (IPv6)
       address. If your network uses  subnet  routing,  you  must
       know  the  subnet mask for your network.  The network manager
 should be able to provide you  with  the  information
       that you need.

       After  the  ip6_setup  command completes, the network services
 on the system can be  restarted  manually  with  the
       following command: #  /usr/sbin/rcinet restart

       Before you restart the network services with the preceding
       command, warn the users that the network services  on  the
       system  are  being  removed.   File  systems that were not
       mounted using the /etc/fstab file or the automount command
       must  be  unmounted  with  the  umount  command.  You must
       remount these file systems using the mount  command  after
       the network is started on your system.

       Alternatively,  you can reboot the system with the following
 command: # /usr/sbin/shutdown -r now
