A company uses the SLAAC method to configure IPv6 addresses for the employee workstations. Which address will a client use as its default gateway?​

  1. the all-routers multicast address
  2. the link-local address of the router interface that is attached to the network*
  3. the unique local address of the router interface that is attached to the network
  4. the global unicast address of the router interface that is attached to the network

Explanation:
When a PC is configured to use the SLAAC method for configuring IPv6 addresses, it will use the prefix and prefix-length information that is contained in the RA message, combined with a 64-bit interface ID (obtained by using the EUI-64 process or by using a random number that is generated by the client operating system), to form an IPv6 address. It uses the link-local address of the router interface that is attached to the LAN segment as its IPv6 default gateway address.
