Configuring EIGRP on IPv6

EIGRP for IPv6 a Packet Tracer Lab.

In this Tutorial I am going to show you how to configure EIGRP on IPv6. To show EIGRP configuration on IPv6 i have used cisco packet tracer software here. Even if you are new to IPv6  you can easily configure EIGRP on IPv6. I have shown step wise notes to configure EIGRP on IPv6. Following these few simple steps you can easily Configure EIGRP  using IPv6.

STEP 1: Assign IPv6 Address as Mentioned in Above Topology.


STEP 2: Configure EIGRPv6 on Router R1



R1#config t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

R1(config)#ipv6 router eigrp 1

R1(config-rtr)#eigrp router-id

R1(config-rtr)#no shut


R1(config)#int fa0/0

R1(config-if)#ipv6 add fe80::1 link-local

R1(config-if)#ipv6 eigrp 1


R1(config)#int fa0/1

R1(config-if)#ipv6 eigrp 1



STEP 3: Configure EIGRP on IPv6 on Router R2



R2#config t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

R2(config)#ipv6 router eigrp 1

R2(config-rtr)#eigrp router-id

R2(config-rtr)#no shut


R2(config)#int fa0/0

R2(config-if)#ipv6 eigrp 1



R2(config)#int fa0/1

R2(config-if)#ipv6 add fe80::1 link-local

R2(config-if)#ipv6 eigrp 1



Step 4: Verification of EIGRP configuration  on IPv6

Check  whether EIGRPv6 protocol configured on Router R1 or Not.


R1#show ipv6 protocol

IPv6 Routing Protocol is "connected"

IPv6 Routing Protocol is "static"

IPv6 Routing Protocol is "eigrp 1"

EIGRP metric weight K1=1, K2=0, K3=1, K4=0, K5=0

EIGRP maximum hopcount 100

EIGRP maximum metric variance 1




Redistributing: eigrp 1

Maximum path: 16

Distance: internal 90 external 170


Check EIGRPv6 Route configured using IPv6

R1#show ipv6 route
