How to Set IPv6 Address in Juniper

Juniper Configuring an IPv6 Address on an Interface

You want to configure an interface to work on an IPv6 network.
The IPv6 address configuration is very similar to that for IPv4:

# set interfaces ge-0/0/3 unit 0 family inet6 address abc0:2:3:1::2/64

For an interface to operate on an IPv6 network, it needs an IPv6 address in the inet6 address family. To see that the IPv6 address has been set, look at the logical interface:

# run show interfaces ge-0/0/3.0 brief
Logical interface ge-0/0/3.0
Flags: SNMP-Traps Encapsulation: ENET2
inet6 fe80::205:85ff:fe02:a403/64
