8. Upgrading BusyBox

The BusyBox version installed by default on the N810 tablet doesn't support IPv6. It is necessary to upgrade BusyBox in order to enable IPv6 support on some IPv6-compatible commands like ifconfig, ping6, traceroute, etc.

In order to upgrade busybox, first is necessary to download the right version:

From now on, BusyBox has IPv6 support enabled and ifconfig and ping6 can be used, as can be seen on Figure 8.

In order to test the IPv6 support on MAEMO, the ping6 command can be used to test the IPv6 loopback interface (::1), as stated on Figure 9.
