IPv6 subnetting

Sat Oct 05, 2013 10:08 pm

Hello,

I can't find a lot of information about subnetting IPv6 addresses. My professor gave us only one example of subnetting and it didn't help much. It seemed to me to be easy to understand but I found myself trying to complete Packet Tracer activity for the last 4 hours and just can't find the solution. I am supposed to start with the IPv6 subnet 2001:DB:ACAD:00C8::/64 and assign it to R1 G0/0 LAN. For the rest of the IPv6 subnets, increment the 2001:DB:ACAD:00C8::/64 subnet address by 1. I need only 5 subnets.

I tried to assign the ipv6 addresses that are listed below:

R1 G0/0 LAN: 2001:DB:ACAD:00C8::0/64
R1 G0/1 LAN: 2001:DB:ACAD:00C9::0/64
R2 G0/0 LAN: 2001:DB:ACAD:00CA::0/64
R2 G0/1 LAN: 2001:DB:ACAD:00CB::0/64
WAN Link (connects R1 and R2): 2001:DB:ACAD:00CC::0/64

When I checked the results it said in PT that the ip addresses are wrong. I tried different options and ideas but none of them worked. Can anyone help me? I have a test on Monday and would like to understand IPv6 subnetting before this test :/

Seems right to me. Might be that PT doesnt like that you use the ::0/64 IP even though that is technically valid.
som om sinnet hade svartnat för evigt.
