    ipv6 configuration problem


    I've tried to configure the ipv6 adress for my NIC but while everything seems ok I still can't ping6 the adress.

    The module is loaded
    $ lsmod | grep ipv6
    ipv6 235233 12


    and I've got site adress added to eth0
    $ ifconfig eth0 | grep 'inet6'
    inet6 addr: fec0::1/64 Scope:Site
    inet6 addr: fe80::20f:1fff:fe78:d18/64 Scope:Link


    looking into
    $ cat /etc/sysconfig/network
    NETWORKING=yes
    HOSTNAME=garfield
    NISDOMAIN=mydomain.com
    NETWORKING_IPV6=yes


    but still when I do
    $ ping6 fec0::1/64
    unknown host


    Why? What's wrong? Even specifying interface with ping6 -I eth0 doesn't work. Same results I've got with traceroute6.
    Looking into ipv6 routes, there are some and they look fine.

    I'm using FC3 with
    $ uname -r
    2.6.9-1.681_FC3smp

    could ping6 fec0::1 or ping6 -I eth0 fec0::1 works?
