My ISP assigned prefix is: 2607:F4B8:3::/48
So I am building my internal IPv6 firewall/router/ etc.
I want to have a static IPv6 address on its eth0 so that I can create
static v6 routes to it from the gateway. I add the following lines to
if-up eth0 gets the error:
Error: an inet prefix is expected rather than "2607:F4B8:3:1/64".
ERROR : [ipv6_add_addr_on_device] Cannot add IPv6 address
'2607:F4B8:3:1/64' on dev 'eth0'
What is missing?
Why is it not building an address of 2607:F4B8:3:1:0:40:F405:A8F1 ?
