It's just a local network. All computers involved are sitting on my desk, to there's only the switch to worry about. As I mentioned in other notes, the computers receive the ping, but don't respond. This is shown by ethereal. They do respond to their own pings. All systems are running SuSE 9.2 or 9.1, which support IPv6.

But are you sure your switch can handle the IPv6? If your switch is not IPv6 enabled, I doubt that you will get it to work.

Swtiches are transparent to IP or any other protocol. The only forward ethernet packets, without regard to higher level protocols. And yes, ethereal shows the "Neighbor Solicitation" packet being received at the destination computer. The problem is that the destination computer is not responding.
