During the course to deploy Ipv6, we found several critical implementation and operational issues which distract user and possibly prevent wide deployment of Ipv6. Among the problems we noticed stateless IP autoconfiguration, which provides for each nodes connected to the network an IP address. However, two nodes may have the same address, and a network conflict appears. In this case a manual IP address, which depends on restarting Network Interface Card, is required. In this paper, we present a technique that, independently of rebooting NIC, maintain the IP address fix. Validation is done by using Fedoracore Operating System.
