Task 1: Setting up IPv6 on the Interface.
Step 1: Access the console port of the router.
Step 2: Assign the following IPv6 addresses.
|Router||Interface||IPv6 address and mask|
|R1||fa0/0 or gi0/0||2001:A:B:C::1/64|
|R1||fa0/1 or gi0/1||2001:172:16:1::17/64|
|R2||fa0/0 or gi0/0||2001:C:B:A::1/64|
|R2||fa0/1 or gi0/1||2001:172:16:1::18/64|
Step 3: Check the status of the interfaces and make sure they are up/up before continuing.
Step 4: Enter a command which enables routing between the interfaces.
Step 5: Examine the contents of the IPv6 routing table.
Step 6: Check whether or not your PC has automatically created a global IPv6 address.
This is an example output on PC1 and please note the IPv6 addresses, both global and linklocal addresses are present in the displayed output.
Based on the above information, can you run IPv4 and IPv6 on the same interface? And If I run IPv4 and IPv6 on the same router do I have separate routing, topology and neighborship tables?
Task 2: Enabling EIGRP for IPv6.
Step 1: Enable EIGRP for IPv6 and set an autonomous number of 100.
NB: EIGRP can use a shutdown feature when you are in router configuration mode, execute the
no shutdown just in case EIGRP isn’t enabled by default.
Step 2: Use the appropriate commands to associate both the ethernet interfaces with the routing process you have just enabled. Very important you shutdown the interfaces before you apply the command, remember to enable the interface once you have configured them.
Step 3: Navigate through some of the show commands and examine the output details.
You should see similar displays to the following.
When using the
sh ipv6 eigrp nei command please observe that the link-local address is shown instead of the global address.
The output of the
sh ipv6 protocol command references a number of key values which were also present in EIGRP for IPv4. However there is no mention of auto-summarization!
Do any IPv6 routing protocols support auto-summarization at the classful boundary point and if not, why not?
Step 4: Disable EIGRP for IPv6
R(config)#no ipv6 router eigrp 100 R(config)#int range fa0/0 - 1 R(config-if-range)#shut R(config-if-range)#no ipv6 eigrp 100 R(config-if-range)#no shut
Step 5: Save your running-config
