Re: RE: Ping6 Problem with link local address



Hi Christina

Thank you for your great advise.
It works!

BTW, I just configured the IPv6 on my Linux PC.
It shows fe80::xxxxx/64
So it says that scope is /64 instead of
%1, or %2 ...

And from Linux, I successfullty ping6 to Win2003 and
WinXP.
This may sound basic, but could you tell me how to ping6 to
the local-link ipv6 with scope representation /64?
(Other word, how can I translate /64 to % format?)

Thank you.

Tak
