    Stateless Autoconfig question

    Kristina

      I'm in an IPv6 class looking at a trace where a host with a MAC address of 00:11:d8:39:29:2b acquired a v6 address of:

       

      fe80::211:d8ff:fe39:292b

       

      What I'm wondering is where the 02 came from in the fe80::211?

      I expected to see an IP of fe80:11:d8ff:fe39:292b.

       

      Thanks for any and all knowledge shared.
