IPv6 pentesting 1. - ping6

I'm starting a series about IPv6, since not much published about it. This is understandable, because it is still not as common, but it will not always be the case. I won't describe the IPv6 protocol, everyone can look after that.

There are not a lot IPv6 testing tools, the most widely used is the thc-ipv6 package, which contains a lot of different utilities. The goal is to go through them one by one. But before proceeding, let's look at how to ping IPv6, because the ping command does not work. What we need is a "ping6". Use it the same way as ping.
