'ping -6 www.google.com' from a command prompt on the Windows host os works
as expected, but 'ping6 www.google.com' from within the CentOS guest vm
gets no response.
Here is the routing tables (output of 'ip -4/-6 route) of the CentOS guest:
# ip -4 route
default via 192.168.178.1 dev enp0s3
169.254.0.0/16 dev enp0s3 scope link metric 1002
192.168.178.0/24 dev enp0s3 proto kernel scope link src 192.168.178.33
# ip -6 route
