1. What is the most important motivating factor for moving to IPv6?

2. True or False: 4 out of 5 RIRs no longer have enough IPv4 addresses to allocate to customers on a regular basis.

3. Which of the following techniques use native IPv6 connectivity?

4. What is the recommended prefix length for most IPv6 subnets?

5. Which part of a GUA is assigned by the ISP?

6. Which type of IPv6 unicast address is not routable between networks?

7. True or False: The Subnet ID field in an GUA must borrow bits from the interface ID.

8. What type of IPv6 address begins with fe80?

9. True or False. RA messages are sent to all IPv6 routers by hosts requesting addressing information.

10. Which dynamic addressing method for GUAs is the one where devices rely solely on the contents of the RA message for their addressing information?

11. Which dynamic addressing method for GUAs is the one where devices rely solely on a DHCPv6 server for their addressing information?

12. Which dynamic addressing method for GUAs is the one where devices get their IPv6 configuration in a RA message and request DNS information from a DHCPv6 server?

13. What are the two methods a device can use to generate its own IPv6 interface ID?

14. True or False? IPv6 was designed with subnetting in mind.

15. Which field in an IPv6 GUA is used for subnetting?

16. Given a /48 Global Routing Prefix and a /64 prefix, what is the subnet portion of the following address: 2001:db8:cafe:1111:2222:3333:4444:5555

17. Given a /32 Global Routing Prefix and a /64 prefix, how many bits would be allocated for the Subnet ID?

18. What is the valid most compressed format possible of the IPv6 address 2001:0DB8:0000:AB00:0000:0000:0000:1234?

There are two rules defining how an IPv6 address can be compressed. The first rule states that leading zeros in a hextet can be eliminated. The second rule states that a single :: can be used to represent one or more contiguous all zero hextets. There can be one and only one :: in an IPv6 address.

19. What is the prefix associated with the IPv6 address 2001:DB8:D15:EA:CC44::1/64?

The /64 represents the network and subnet IPv6 fields. The fourth field of hexadecimal digits is referred to as the subnet ID. The subnet ID for this address is 2001:DB8:D15:EA::0/64.​​

20. What type of address is automatically assigned to an interface when IPv6 is enabled on that interface?

When IPv6 is enabled on any interface, that interface will automatically generate an IPv6 link-local address.

21. Which IPv6 network prefix is only intended for local links and can not be routed?

FE80::/10 is a link-local prefix. Devices with only link-local addresses can communicate with other devices on the same network but not with devices on any other network.

22. What is the purpose of the command ping ::1?

The address ::1 is an IPv6 loopback address. Using the command ping ::1 tests the internal IP stack to ensure that it is configured and functioning correctly. It does not test reachability to any external device, nor does it confirm that IPv6 addresses are properly configured on the host.

23. What is the interface ID of the IPv6 address 2001:DB8::1000:A9CD:47FF:FE57:FE94/64?

The interface ID of an IPv6 address is the rightmost 64 bits, or last four hextets, of the address if no interface ID bits have been used for subnets.

24. What is the network address for the IPv6 address 2001:DB8:AA04:B5::1/64?

The /64 represents the network and subnet IPv6 fields which are the first four groups of hexadecimal digits. The first address within that range is the subnetwork address of 2001:DB8:AA04:B5::/64.​

25. Which address type is not supported in IPv6?

IPv6 supports unicast, private, and multicast addresses but does not support Layer 3 broadcasts.

26. What is indicated by a successful ping to the ::1 IPv6 address?

The IPv6 address ::1 is the loopback address. A successful ping to this address means that the TCP/IP stack is correctly installed. It does not mean that any addresses are correctly configured.

27. What is the most compressed representation of the IPv6 address 2001:0db8:0000:abcd:0000:0000:0000:0001?

The IPv6 address 2001:0db8:0000:abcd:0000:0000:0000:0001 in its most compressed format would be 2001:db8:0:abcd::1. The one leading zero in the second hextet can

be removed. The first hextet of zeros would be compressed to a single zero. The three consecutive hextets of zeros can be compressed to a double colon ::. The three leading zeros in the last hextet can be removed. The double colon :: can only be used once in an address.

28. What is the minimum configuration for a router interface that is enabled for IPv6?

With IPv6, a router interface typically has more than one IPv6 address. The router will at least have a link-local address that can be automatically generated, but the router commonly has an global unicast address also configured.

29. At a minimum, which address is required on IPv6-enabled interfaces?

All IPv6 enabled interfaces must at minimum have a link-local address. Other IPv6 addresses can be assigned to the interface as required.

30. What are three parts of an IPv6 global unicast address? (Choose three.)

There are three elements that make up an IPv6 global unicast address. A global routing prefix which is provided by an ISP, a subnet ID which is determined by the organization, and an interface ID which uniquely identifies the interface interface of a host.

31. Your organization is issued the IPv6 prefix of 2001:db8:130f::/48 by your service provider. With this prefix, how many bits are available for your organization to create /64 subnetworks if interface ID bits are not borrowed?

The global routing prefix that is assigned to the organization has 48 bits. The next 16 bits are used for the subnet ID. This makes up the first 64 bits of the address, which is typically the network portion of the address. The remaining 64 bits of the 128-bit IPv6 address are for the interface ID (or host) portion of the address.

32. Which type of IPv6 address is not routable and used only for communication on a single subnet?

Link-local addresses have relevance only on the local link. Routers will not forward packets that include a link-local address as either the source or destination address.
