RIPng Configuration Example on Cisco IOS
RIPng Configuration On Cisco IOS
The configuration of RIPng is a little different from its predecessor, RIPv2. First of all, RIPng is IPv6 avare routing protocol and before RIPng configuration, IPv6 must be configured in your system.
In this article, we will configure RIPng 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 configuretion is done via interfaces not networks.
