I'm currently implementing IPv6 over an Anycast network for a University project. I've just managed to get Anycast working which is a huge milestone, but I'm experiencing issues.
I have (erroneously or otherwise) configured router-to-router links with the command "ipv6 address autoconfiguration", so that each interface will be assigned an IP address automatically. Now that I've come to ping from one side of the network to the other, I can't. I have a sneaky feeling that I can't use autoconfiguration in this way. Am I right?
Note - I have enabled OSPFv3 over the whole network and it is working fine (adjacancies and all), which initially led me to believe that I could use autoconfig. as I am doing. I looked in the routing table, and all of the routers have the autoconfig. prefix (FE80::/10) going to "Null0" interface. This would explain why the pings aren't working, but basically I am unsure as to whether I have to manually address all the routers' interfaces or not.
