Ping for IPv6 (Ping6)

The Ping6 test is a point-to-point test that accepts an IPv6 address or IPv6 hostname to see if an IPv6 switch is communicating properly with another device on the same or another IPv6 network. A ping test checks the path between the switch and another device by sending IP packets (ICMP Echo Requests). To use a ping6 command with an IPv6 hostname or fully qualified domain names, see DNS resolver for IPv6. You can issue single or multiple ping tests with varying repetitions and timeout periods to wait for a ping reply. Replies to each ping test are displayed on the console screen. To stop a ping test before it finishes, press [Ctrl] [C].

For more information about using a ping test, see the current Aruba-OS Switch Management and Configuration Guide for your switch.
