EIGRP For IPv6 Configuration On Cisco IOS


How to Configure EIGRP For IPv6 On Cisco Routers?

EIGRP for IPv6 is one of the most used Routing Protocol with IPv6. In this example, we will see how to configure this IPv6 version of EIGRP on Cisco routers.

For our example, we will use the topology below.

Here, simply we have four routers connected serially eachother and two switches and PCs are connected to this routers.


As a summary, let’s check waht will we do for this IPv6 Routing Protocol Configuration:

1. Global IPv6 Enable on Routers
2. EIGRP Process Creation
3. Router-ID Assign
4. Assigning EIGRP Process to Interfaces
5. Passive Interface Configuration
6. EIGRP for IPv6 Verification

Let’s see each of this Configuration steps one by one.

Global IPv6 Enable on Routers

First of all we enable IPv6 routing on all routers. Because, by default ipv6 routing is not enabled.

Router A # config terminal
Router A (config) # ipv6 unicast-routing
Router B # config terminal
Router B (config) # ipv6 unicast-routing
Router C # config terminal
Router C (config) # ipv6 unicast-routing
Router D # config terminal
Router D (config) # ipv6 unicast-routing

EIGRP for IPv6 Process Creation

After enabling IPv6 routing, it is time to configure EIGRP IPv6. For this configuration we will use “ipv6 router eigrp -process number-” configuration command. We will create the EIGRP process on the Router. And we will no shutdown this eigrp process.

Router A # config terminal
Router A (config) # ipv6 router eigrp 100
Router A (config-rtr)# no shutdown
Router B # config terminal
Router B (config) # ipv6 router eigrp 100
Router B (config-rtr)# no shutdown
