Wendell Odom 100-105 Official Cert Guide pg 734 IPv6 Solicited Node Multicast Address

lendawg137

On page 721, the Solicited-Note Multicast address is defined as FF02:0000:0000:0000:0000:0001:FF__:____, 

with the last six digits being the "Last 6 Hex Digits of Unicast Address". 

 

So why does Fig. 31-4 show PC2 with IPv6 Address of 2001:DB8:1111:1::22/64, with MAC Address 0200:2222:2222 having a Solicited-Note Multicast address of FF02::1:FF00:22? 

Shouldn't the Solicited-Node Multicast address be FF02::1:FF22:2222

This information is difficult enough to understand without inconsistencies. :(

Hi there,

You observation is correct, FF02::1:FF22:2222/104 is the correct address.

https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4291#section-2.7.1

 

The error does not appear in the currentl published errata:

...you should make a submission, clearly everyone else who has read this chapter was suffering IPv6 fatigue and didn't notice it!
