CCNA Portable Command Guide: IPv6

Chapter Description

This chapter provides information and commands concerning a number of IPv6-related topics such as assigning IPv6 addresses to interfaces, IPv6 tunnels, and IPv6 ping.

IPv6 and RIPng

Router(config)#interface serial 0/0

Moves to interface configuration mode.

Router(config-if)#ipv6 rip tower enable

Creates the RIPng process named tower and enables RIPng on the interface.

NOTE: Unlike RIPv1 and RIPv2, where you needed to create the RIP routing process with the router rip command and then use the network command to specify the interfaces on which to run RIP, the RIPng process is created automatically when RIPng is enabled on an interface with the ipv6 rip name enable command.

NOTE: Cisco IOS Software automatically creates an entry in the configuration for the RIPng routing process when it is enabled on an interface.

NOTE: The ipv6 router rip process-name command is still needed when configuring optional features of RIPng.

Router(config)#ipv6 router rip tower

Creates the RIPng process named tower if it has not already been created, and moves to router configuration mode

Router(config-router)#maximum-paths 2

Defines the maximum number of equal-cost routes that RIPng can support.

NOTE: The number of paths that can be used is a number from 1 to 64. The default is 4.
