Weighting addresses differently
« on: January 05, 2016, 01:04:18 PM »

I had thought there was a way to manually weight IPv6 addresses in Windows.  For example, if I had 2001:db8:1::1/64 and 2001:db8:2::1, I would be able to override the OS's selection of the "preferred" address, but I've been unable to find anything.

You can use the prefix policy and weigh one prefix higher as the other.

I tried doing that and it didn't work...but it's very possible I did something incorrectly.
