Configuring IPv6 Addresses

The web console allows you to configure an IPv6 address. The following are some configuration guidelines.

  • Control Manager accepts standard IPv6 address presentations.

    For example:

    2001:0db7:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334

    2001:db7:85a3:0:0:8a2e:370:7334

    2001:db7:85a3::8a2e:370:7334

    ::ffff:192.0.2.128

  • Control Manager also accepts link-local IPv6 addresses, such as:

    fe80::210:5aff:feaa:20a2

    Warning:

    Exercise caution when specifying a link-local IPv6 address because even though Control Manager can accept the address, it might not work as expected under certain circumstances. For example, Control Manager cannot update from an update source if the source is on another network segment and is identified by its link-local IPv6 address.

  • When the IPv6 address is part of a URL, enclose the address in square brackets ([]).
