Basic elements for configuration¶
Starting RIPng can be done by using a very simple configuration. Example below illustrates a basic configuration setup with one network configured. Automatically, RIPng will operate over all the interfaces where an IP address is defined, whose network address is included in the provided network prefix. Network addresses included in this prefix and defined on these interfaces will be advertised.
It is worth to be noted that RIPng does not announce the link-local prefixes (fe80::).
vrf main routing ripng network 2001::/16 .. .. commit
As mentioned in above config, RIPng is activated, with providing network prefix. It is also possible to provide interface name. If an interface name is provided, RIPng will then be activated on this interface and all IPv6 network prefixes defined on this interface will be advertised.
vrf main routing ripng interface eth1_0
RIPng can be stopped by using following command:
vrf main del routing ripng commit
Alternatively, it is also possible to just disable RIPng without having to remove the whole configuration.
vrf main routing ripng enabled false commit
Currently, RIPng is only supported in VRF main.
Verifying RIPng configuration¶
The following commands can be used to verify RIPng operation.
This command displays the RIB of the RIPng protocol.
vrouter> show ripng Codes: R - RIPng, C - connected, S - Static, O - OSPF, B - BGP Sub-codes: (n) - normal, (s) - static, (d) - default, (r) - redistribute, (i) - interface, (a/S) - aggregated/Suppressed Network Next Hop Via Metric Tag Time R(n) fec0:1::/64 fe80::dced:3ff:fe4a:8933 ntfp3 2 0 02:39 C(i) fec0:2::/64 :: self 1 0
show ripng status¶
This command displays Turbo Router running state of RIPng.
vrouter> show ripng status Routing Protocol is "RIPng" Sending updates every 30 seconds with +/-50%, next due in 2 seconds Timeout after 180 seconds, garbage collect after 120 seconds Outgoing update filter list for all interface is not set Incoming update filter list for all interface is not set Default redistribution metric is 1 Redistributing: Default version control: send version 1, receive version 1 Interface Send Recv eth1_0 1 1 Routing for Networks: eth1_0 Routing Information Sources: Gateway BadPackets BadRoutes Distance Last Update fe80::dced:3ff:fe4a:8933 0 0 120 00:00:04
