DESCRIPTION

The Get-NetIPv6Protocol cmdlet gets the global IPv6 protocol configurations for the computer. The cmdlet returns IPv6 Protocol settings, such as the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) setting, the default hop limit, the neighbor cache limit, and the multicast configuration. If you do not specify any parameters, the cmdlet gets all the IPv6 Protocol configuration settings.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Get all IPv6 protocol configurations

PS C:\>Get-NetIPv6Protocol

This command gets all IPv6 protocol configurations for the IP interface. The default output for the cmdlet does not include all properties of the NetIPv6Protocol object.

Example 2: Output all properties of IPv6 protocol configurations

PS C:\>Get-NetIPv6Protocol | Format-List -Property *

This command gets all IPv6 protocol configurations for the IP interface. The command uses the Format-List cmdlet to display all the properties in the output in the form of a table. For more information, type Get-Help Format-Table. The command default output omits some properties.

PARAMETERS

-AddressMaskReply

Specifies an array of values for address mask reply. The cmdlet gets the IPv6 protocol configurations that have these values. Address mask reply specifies how the computer responds to ICMP address mask packets. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

Type: AddressMaskReply[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 
Accepted values: Disabled, Enabled

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-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.

Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Session

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-DefaultHopLimit

Specifies an array of values for the default hop limit. The cmdlet gets the IPv6 protocol configurations that have these values. The default hop limit is 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 time-to-live (TTL) field in all outbound traffic. When routers forward a packet, they decrement the hop limit by 1 and discard the packet when the hop limit is 0.

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-DhcpMediaSense

Specifies an array of values for Media Sense. The cmdlet gets IPv6 protocol configurations that have these values.

Media Sense provides a mechanism for the network adapter to notify the protocol stack of media connect and disconnect events.

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
