Detailed Description

The Set-NetIPv6Protocol cmdlet modifies the global IPv6 protocol configuration for a computer. If you do not specify any parameters for the cmdlet, the cmdlet sets the default values for the IPv6 protocol configuration.

Parameters

-AddressMaskReply<AddressMaskReply>

Specifies a value for address mask reply. The cmdlet modifies the value for this setting. Address mask reply specifies how the computer responds to ICMP address mask packets. The acceptable values for this parameter are: 

-- Enabled. The computer responds to ICMP address mask packets.
-- Disabled. The computer does not respond to ICMP address mask packets.

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-CimSession<CimSession[]>

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

-DefaultHopLimit<UInt32>

Specifies a value for the default hop limit. The cmdlet modifies the value for this setting. This parameter sets the default value for the CurrentHopLimit property in the IP interface. The current hop limit is the value that the IP interface writes in the hop limit field in all outbound IPv6 traffic. When routers forward a packet, they decrement the hop limit by 1 and discard the packet when the hop limit is 0. The default value is 128.

-DhcpMediaSense<DhcpMediaSense>

Specifies a value for Media Sense. The cmdlet modifies the value for this setting.

Media Sense provides a mechanism for the network adapter to notify the protocol stack of media connect and disconnect events. These events trigger the DHCP client to take an action, such as attempting to renew a DHCP lease or removing routes that are related to a disconnected network. When Media Sense is enabled, the network parameters on the laptop of a roaming user are automatically and transparently updated without requiring a restart when the user moves from one location to another. The acceptable values for this parameter are: 

-- Enabled
-- Disabled

The default value is Enabled.

-GroupForwardedFragments<GroupForwardedFragments>

Specifies a value for group forwarded fragments. The cmdlet modifies the value for this setting. Group forwarded fragments specifies whether the IP interface collects fragments into groups before it forwards the fragments. This parameter sets the GroupForwardedFragments property in the IP interface. The acceptable values for this parameter are: 

-- Enabled. The IP interface collects IPv6 protocol fragments into groups before it forwards the fragments.
-- Disabled. The IP interface does not collect IPv6 protocol fragments into groups before it forwards the fragments.

The default value is Disabled.

-IcmpRedirects<IcmpRedirects>

Specifies a value for Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) redirect. The cmdlet modifies the value for this setting. ICMP redirect specifies whether to update the path cache in response to ICMP redirect packets. This parameter sets the IcmpRedirects property in the IP interface. The acceptable values for this parameter are: 

-- Enabled. The IP interface updates the path cache in response to ICMP redirect packets.
-- Disabled. The IP interface does not update the path cache in response to ICMP redirect packets.

The default value is Enabled.
