IPv6 basic Router configuration lab

Assign IPv6 Address on router and PC using cisco packet tracer.In this lab we will learmn how to Assign IPV6 address on Router Interfaces and PC.

To understand ipv6 address assignment we will take an example lab 1 router and 2 Computers as you can see in below network topology diagram.

Basically in this Lab you will Learn to Configure Router Interfaces for IPv6.



ipv6 on pc


ipv6 on computer

STEP 3:Assign IPv6 on Router Interfaces.



Router#config t

Router(config)#ipv6 unicast-routing

Router(config)#int fa0/1

Router(config-if)#ipv6 add 2001::1/64


Router(config)#int fa0/0

Router(config-if)#ipv6 add 2000::1/64

Router(config-if)#no shut


STEP 4:Test for network communication.

 Packet Tracer PC Command Line 1.0
 PC>ping 2001::2

Pinging 2001::2 with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 2001::2: bytes=32 time=0ms TTL=127
 Reply from 2001::2: bytes=32 time=0ms TTL=127
 Reply from 2001::2: bytes=32 time=0ms TTL=127
 Reply from 2001::2: bytes=32 time=0ms TTL=127

Ping statistics for 2001::2:
 Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
 Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
 Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms



STEP 5: Check IPv6 Address on PC



FastEthernet0 Connection:(default port)

Link-local IPv6 Address.........: FE80::20B:BEFF:FE66:D951

IPv6 Address....................: 2000::2/64

Default Gateway.................: 2000::1

DHCPv6 Client DUID..............: 00-01-00-01-D0-07-C3-5C-00-0B-BE-66-D9-51



STEP 6:Check for IPv6 Route on cisco devices like routers.


Router#show ipv6 route

IPv6 Routing Table - 5 entries

Codes: C - Connected, L - Local, S - Static, R - RIP, B - BGP

U - Per-user Static route, M - MIPv6

I1 - ISIS L1, I2 - ISIS L2, IA - ISIS interarea, IS - ISIS summary

O - OSPF intra, OI - OSPF inter, OE1 - OSPF ext 1, OE2 - OSPF ext 2

ON1 - OSPF NSSA ext 1, ON2 - OSPF NSSA ext 2

D - EIGRP, EX - EIGRP external

C 2000::/64 [0/0]

via ::, FastEthernet0/0

L 2000::1/128 [0/0]

via ::, FastEthernet0/0

C 2001::/64 [0/0]

via ::, FastEthernet0/1

L 2001::1/128 [0/0]

via ::, FastEthernet0/1

L FF00::/8 [0/0]

via ::, Null0
