Implementing EIGRP for IPv6



It is important for us to know how to convert the IPv4 to IPv6 because we have to have set the addresses for IPv6. The network topology is as before but in this lab we will be only configuring R1, R2, and R4 to get you understood that how it is done.

We can convert our IPv4 into IPv6 by just adding fd00 at beginning of IP address and /64 at end. For example we have IPv4 address it will be written in IPv6 as fd00:192:168:1::2/64 and that is all.



Notice that now we have IP for version 4 and version 6 as well, we can now turn off IPv4 and only work with IPv6.



EIGRP configuration for IPv6 is a bit difference. There are several steps that should be done to enable this protocol with IPv6.



Enable IPv6

ipv6 unicast-routing

Enable EIGRP protocol

ipv6 router eigrp <autonomous system number>

Give router ID

eigrp router-id x.x.x.x

Turn off EIGRP routing protocol (It is of by default)

no shutdown

Go to interface and enable EIGRP

ipv6 eigrp 1





Notice that as soon as we turned on the protocol on interface the routes showed up.


Routing table of R2.


Following is the IPv6 address for R1 interface gig0/1 which is connected to laptop.


Now we ping this IP and traceroute this to verify whether the protocol is working or not.


Here is the result which shows that there is connectivity between R4 and R1 through R2.

Prerequisites for 200-301

200-301 is a single exam, consisting of about 120 questions. It covers a wide range of topics, such as routing and switching, security, wireless networking, and even some programming concepts. As with other Cisco certifications, you can take it at any of the Pearson VUE certification centers.

The recommended training program that can be taken at a Cisco academy is called Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions (CCNA). The successful completion of a training course will get you a training badge.
