I have a test network setup as shown in the attached image.

All 3 machines A, B, C are running Fedora 14 Linux.

I want to ping machine C from A and ping machine A from C.

I have enabled ipv6 forwarding on B.
On A I have set fc01::2/64 as Gateway. I can ping fc01::2/64 and fc01:3/64 from A.
On C I have set fc01::3/64 as Gateway. I can ping fc01::3/64 and fc01::2/65 from C.

However I cannot ping C (fc01::4/64) from A (fc01::1/64) and vice versa.

Please advise...

You seem to have 2 networks, but only one subnet: fc01::X/64 on both sides of B

Consider using fc01::C/64 on A-B and fc02::X/64 on B-C
