Setting IPv6 Addresses

In an IPv6 environment, you can set the following IPv6 addresses and use them at the same time.
Link-Local Address
An address that can only be used within the same link. It cannot be used to communicate with devices beyond a router.
A link-local address is automatically set when usage of IPv6 addresses is enabled.
Stateless Address
An address that is generated automatically using the network prefix provided by the router and the MAC address of the machine.
This address is discarded when the machine is restarted or turned ON.
Manual Address
An address that is entered manually by specifying the IP address, prefix length, and default router address.
Stateful Address
An address obtained from a DHCP server using DHCPv6.
