Setting IPv6 Addresses
For more information about the basic operations to be performed when setting the machine from the
Remote UI, see
Setting Up Menu Options from Remote UI(P. 187) .
Start the Remote UI and log in to System Manager Mode.
Click [Settings/Registration] on the Portal page.
Select [Network Settings]
Click [Edit] in [IPv6 Settings].
Select the [Use IPv6] check box and configure the required settings.
The IPv6 addresses of the machine can be configured via the Remote UI. Before
setting IPv6 addresses, check the IPv4 address settings (
Settings(P. 44) ). You need to set the correct IPv4 settings to use IPv6 addresses.
The machine can use the following multiple IPv6 addresses:
An address that is only valid within a subnet or link and cannot be used to communicate with
devices beyond a router. A link-local address is automatically set when the IPv6 function of the
machine is enabled.
An address that is entered manually. When using this address, specify the prefix length and default
An address that is generated automatically using the MAC address of the machine and the network
prefix that is advertised by the router. Stateless addresses are discarded when the machine is
restarted (or turned ON).
An address obtained from a DHCP server using DHCPv6.
