IPv6 Static and Default Route Configuration


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.
