I am trying to communicate via IPv6 between a Windows 10 machine and a Redhat 7.5 Linux machine. I am testing my connection by trying to ping both machines from each other's terminal.
I can ping both of my Linux machine's IPv4 and IPv6 addresses from my Windows machine through the command line. However, I cannot ping either of my Windows machine's IPv4 or IPv6 addresses from my Linux machine through the terminal.
When I type ping6 in my Linux terminal, it cannot reach the Windows machine. All packets are lost.

I was able to connect two Windows 10 machines together with the same crossover cable and they could both ping and ping -6 each other just fine, so I do not believe it is a firewall issue.
I believe it is something wrong with my Linux machine, since I have not tested IPv4 or IPv6 with it through the terminal. Note that my Linux machine can connect to the internet just fine.
Windows IPv4 address: 22.214.171.124
Linux IPv4 address: 126.96.36.199
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Windows IPv6 address: fe80::9509:5d34:26b2:3a8c
Linux IPv6 address: fe80::9509:5d34:26b2:3a8d
Subnet mask prefix: 64
Both machines are connected directly via a Crossover Ethernet cable. There is no box or anything in between them.
Is there anything that I can do/check to get my Linux machine to be able to ping my Windows machine's IPv6 address.
