    Hi all,

    I am facing some problem related to IPv6 Link local Address

    if i type the command
    >ifconfig eth0

    It shows

    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:13:D3:3F:7F:37
    inet addr:172.16.170.117 Bcast:172.16.170.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
    inet6 addr: fe80::213:d3ff:fe3f:7f37/64 Scope:Link <- here
    UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
    RX packets:205560943 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:1
    TX packets:742535676 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:515791587 (491.8 MiB) TX bytes:3168788086 (2.9 GiB)
    Interrupt:193

    Now inet6 addr : fe80::213:d3ff:fe3f:7f37/64 is deleted by ifconfig command

    and when it type the following linux commands
    > ifconfig down
    > ifconfig up

    fe80::213:d3ff:fe3f:7f37/64 appeared once again

    how link local address fe80::213:d3ff:fe3f:7f37/64 can deleted permanently?
