Help regarding IPv6

Hi all,

I have to configure IPv6 in debian and red hat linux machines, so that the machines will accept IPv6 packets.

The problem is I did tat configuration, but while i give ping6 command for pinging ipv6 packets, it is sending (icmp) ordinary ipv4 packets only.

so I need kind help from any of you to solve this issue.
