IPv6 Static and Default Route

Configuration on Cisco IOS



IPv6 Static Route Configuration on Cisco IOS



As you know, static route is the route that you manually define on a router.This is done when we do not want to use Routing Protocols for small part of a network. Or, in large networks some small amout of routing is done via static routing.

To define a static route, we will firstly write the prefix OR the network we will reach and then, the next hop to reach that network.

In IPv4, we are writing static routes with IPv4 addresses. In IPv6, there is only one change. We will do this static routes with IPv6 addresses. Your destination network and next hop will be IPv6.

As an example, let’s write a static route to 2001:ABC::/32 network through the interface ip 2001:ABC:1111:2222::1. And let’s use a manully defined administrative distance 50.

Router(config)# ipv6 route 2001:ABC::/32 2001:ABC:1111:2222::1 50

ipv6 static route

Here, we have writen a static route to 2001:ABC::/32 network via next hop 2001:ABC:1111:2222::1 . And our static route has administartive distance value 50.

IPv6 Default Route Configuration on Cisco IOS

The Default Route is a type of static routing. In Default Route, you are defining a default destination, and every packet without a destination is going there.

In IPv4, you were using IPv4 address for default routing and default destination. In IPv6, you will use a IPv6 address as default routing and default destination. For the default route source IPv6 address you will use “::/0

As an example, let’ s configure Default Route with the next hop 2001:ABC:33:44::1

Router(config)# ipv6 route ::/0 2001:ABC:33:44::1

ipv6 default route

Here, our default destation is 2001:ABC:33:44::1 according to above configuration.

These are the basic static and default route configuration on Cisco routers. How about Routing Protocols that we need for dynamic routing? We will see Routing Protocol of IPv6 with configuration examples the following articles.

IPv6 Routing Protocols…

IPv6 Routing Protocols – Part 1
IPv6 Routing Protocols – Part 2 (OSPFv3)
IPv6 Routing Protocols – Part 3 (EIGRP for IPv6)
IPv6 Routing Protocols – Part 4 (RIPng)
IPv6 Routing Protocols – Part 5 (ISIS for IPv6)
