ipV6 addressing and Routing
To practice setting ip interfaces on the router and to set up static routes.
Figure-1 Network set up
Configuring the routers’ interfaces
1. Physically connect the routers together.
2. To configure Router0’s GigabitEthernet interfaces, execute the following commands. Do this set of commands for each interface using the appropriate ip addresses.
R0r# configure terminal
R0(config)# interface gi0/0
R0(config-if)# ipv6 address 2001:1111::1/64
R0(config-if)# no shutdown
R0(config-if) # end
3. Assign ipv6 addresses to the remaining interfaces according to the diagram.
4. On R0, type show ipv6interface brief
Note what is displayed. Are the interfaces up?
5. On R0, type show int fa0/0. Notice the MAC address.
FastEthernet0/0 is up, line protocol is up (connected)
Hardware is Lance, address is 000a.f3dd.1b01 (bia 000a.f3dd.1b01)
6. On R0, type show ipv6 interfaces
This gives a lot of information that we need to observe to understand how ipV6 works.
FastEthernet0/0 is up, line protocol is up
IPv6 is enabled, link-local address is FE80::20A:F3FF:FEDD:1B01
(made based on MAC address)
No Virtual link-local address(es):
Global unicast address(es):
2001:1111::1, subnet is 2001:1111::/64 (given address)
Joined group address(es):
FF02::1 (all local devices, replacement for broadcast)
FF02::2 (all routers)
FF02::1:FF00:1 (solicited node global address,ARP replacement)
FF02::1:FFDD:1B01 (solicited node local address, MAC used)
7. Ping R1 from R0, type ping ipv6 2001:1111::2
8. Set up the ipv6 static routes
