I'm going to do a project based on IPv6 Network. So I need to create a IPv6 Virtual Network in my Linux OS (I use Ubuntu). Also I need to create some virtual hosts in my virtual network and setup static ips (local ips) for each and every host. And I need to run a terminal on each virtual host.

Can I setup that kind of an environment on my Linux OS? Please give me some help to do this.

Thank You!

You can use some virtualization software for that like Xen, VirtualBox, vmware etc.

It depends what you mean by virtual host and terminal.

If you just need the network devices, you can use VLANs Debian Wiki You basically create sub-interfaces like eth0.5, eth0.6 etc. Then you can give them a static IP with ifconfig and bind any network service to it. (Thats what I do, as I'm doing something similar to you)

If you need a full virtual host behind that, you can setup several virtual machines (e.g., with VirtualBox) and configure them to be in the same (virtual)network. But I'm afraid I can't give you details on that approach.
