My new IPv6 address is 2401:0300:0:1:8080

Netfront has assigned the block 2401:300:0:1::/64 to me. I see my NIC doing auto-config after learning the prefix from the router. The IPv6 address was 2401:300:0:1:215:f2ff:febc:38c which was  derived from EUI-64.

Oh God, too difficult to remember the long string. I manually assigned 2401:300:0:1::8080 to the NIC. Afterwards, I just added the default gateway and everything was working so smoothly without reboot. Thanks to the power and flexibility of IPv6 in Linux
