This test case tests whether NetworkManager can establish a network connection over the IPv6 protocol. You will require a functional IPv6-based network to be available to perform this test. The test assumes the connection is not previously configured.

How to test

  1. Start up the system
  2. Right click on the NetworkManager applet in the system tray (if you are taking part in the 2009-08-13 NetworkManager Test Day, you may have to perform the workaround for this known issue in Rawhide before you can do this)
  3. Click on Edit connections...
  4. Click Add
  5. Click on the IPv6 Settings tab
  6. Change the Method to Manual
  7. Click Add next to the Addresses box, and add the desired IPv6 address
  8. Optionally, Click Routes..., then Add and add an appropriate IPv6 route
  9. Optionally, add IPv6 DNS server address(es), though you will not need to do this if one is already being configured over the IPv4 protocol
  10. Complete the configuration tool and activate the newly-configured connection
  11. Test whether you can connect to other machines on the network via their IPv6 addresses

Expected Results

  1. You should be able to access network resources using IPv6 addresses
  2. If you added route(s), they should be visible in the output of ip -6 route list
