IPv6 Static Routes (On Cisco Routers)

On Cisco routers to create a static route for IPv6, we use the similar commands with IPv4. We can make this configuration with three ways :

1) To send all packets to the next-hop address :

ipv6 route 2001:dc8:b15:4::1/64 2001:dc8:b15:5::1/64

2) Directly attached static route to send packets out an interface :

ipv6 route 2001:dc8:b15:4::1/64 fastethernet 0/0

3) Full specified static route on a broadcast interface :

ipv6 route 2001:dc8:b15:4::1/64 fastethernet 0/0 2001:dc8:b15:5::1

Below there is an example of IPv6 static routes on Cisco routers.

    Hi Kosem,
    like to know ..if i connect the r11 router to the layer 2 switch through fa0/0 then i give the ip for the fa0/0 2001:200:abcd::1/66 its working..or can u give me example configuration…Thanks

    Hi TZ,
    You can assign an ip address to the vlan interface of a layer 2 switch. The detailed link can also help you;)
