Use private addresses that won’t be routed through the Internet. How they are allocated and used will be explained later on. This is fine if we don’t want to connect to the Internet6—and it provides much the same treacherous feeling of security that NAT does. In the long run however, this approach isn’t much use since it doesn’t let us connect to the Internet6. 5. Just use the address prefix reserved for documentation purposes. This is quite generally not a good idea but it turns especially troublesome if we later on try to connect to the Internet6.

1 Here even the loopback interface automatically sets up a linklocal address. While this isn’t required, it doesn’t cause any harm, either. 1 (p. 8)]. Using ping6 or, in the case of Solaris, ping it is possible to ping other machines within the same subnet. In general it is necessary to specify the interface to use, though. Because the fe80::/10 prefix is used on all subnets, it is generally impossible for the kernel to decide which interface to send the ping request to. Depending on the particular implementation, there are various options to the ping or ping6 command.
