RIPng Configuration Example on Cisco IOS


RIPng Cisco Configuration

The configuration of RIPng is a little different from its predecessor, RIPv2. First of all, RIPng is IPv6 avare routing protocol and before RIPng Cisco configuration, IPv6 must be configured in your system.

In this article, we will configure RIPng Cisco according to the below topology.


Here, for RIPng configuration there are two steps. These steps are:

1) Enabling CEF, IPv6 and RIPng globally,
2) Enabling RIPng for the specific interface.

Enabling CEF, IPv6 and RIPnG on Routers

Firstly we will enable CEF with “ip cef” command and again we will enable IPv6 routing with “ipv6 unicast-routing” command. After this we need to create RIPng with a name by “ipv6 router rip ripname” command.

Router1# configure terminal
Router1(config)# ip cef
Router1(config)# ipv6 unicast-routing
Router1(config)# ipv6 router rip CompanyNetworkRIP
Router2# configure terminal
Router2(config)# ip cef
Router2(config)# ipv6 unicast-routing
Router2(config)# ipv6 router rip CompanyNetworkRIP
Router3# configure terminal
Router3(config)# ip cef
Router3(config)# ipv6 unicast-routing
Router3(config)# ipv6 router rip CompanyNetworkRIP

Enabling Interfaces for RIPnG on Routers

After these, the second step is enabling the interfaces for RIPng. In RIPv2, networks are become RIP available via network command. But in RIPng, the configuration is done via interfaces not networks.
