No IPv6 global address when I restart the network service


I addes IPv6 address to my interface as
ifconfig eth0 inet6 add 3fff:ffff:6:5:4:3:2:1
But, when I restart the network service this IPv6 address is gone.
How could I make it as a permanent IPv6 address( that should be edited or deleted when I want but not when I only restart the network)to my interface?

HI Ashok,

I assume you are using Redhat.

add your ip address in ifcfg-ethX file.

IPV6 configuration
