add static routing

    ipv6 -p rtu ::/0 7/2001:470:19:13c::1

add static route to ::/0 (default route) on interface index 7 with ip gateway 2001:470:19:13c::1

delete static route

    ipv6 rtu ::/0 7/2001:470:19:13c::1 life 0

Specifying a lifetime of zero causes the route to be deleted.

-p Saves the setting in the registry.(static)

ipv6 adu

This command adds or removes a unicast or anycast address assignment on an interface.


    ipv6 -p adu 7/2001:470:19:13c::dead:beef

add static ipv6 address to intreface index 7 with ipv6 2001:470:19:13c::dead:beef

delete static ipv6

    ipv6 adu 7/2001:470:19:13c::dead:beef life 0

Specifying a lifetime of zero causes the address to be removed.

-p Saves the setting in the registry.(static)
ipv6 gpu UseTemporaryAddresses

This command determines whether temporary addresses are used at a global level.
i used this command to removes any temporary ipv6 address on interface


    ipv6 -p gpu UseTemporaryAddresses no

-p Saves the UseTemporaryAddresses setting in the registry.
