The IPv6 routing table
Every computer that runs IPv6 determines how to forward packets based on the contents of the IPv6 routing table. To display the IPv6 routing table on a computer that is running Windows, type ipv6 rt at the Command Prompt
Entries in the IPv6 routing table consist of:
The IPv6 routing table is built automatically, based on the current IPv6 configuration of your computer. When forwarding IPv6 packets, the routing table is searched by your computer for an entry that is the most specific match to the destination IPv6 address. A route for the link-local prefix (FE80::/64) is not displayed.
The default route (a route with a prefix of ::/0) is typically used to forward an IPv6 packet to a default router on the local link. Because the router that corresponds to the default router contains information about the network prefixes of the other IPv6 subnets within the larger IPv6 internetwork, it forwards the packet to other routers until it is eventually delivered to the destination.
