FRR fully supports IPv6 routing. As described so far, FRR supports RIPng,
OSPFv3, and BGP-4+. You can give IPv6 addresses to an interface and configure
static IPv6 routing information. FRR IPv6 also provides automatic address
configuration via a feature called
address auto configuration. To do it,
the router must send router advertisement messages to the all nodes that exist
on the network.
Previous versions of FRR could be built without IPv6 support. This is no longer possible.
no ipv6 nd suppress-ra¶
Send router advertisement messages.
ipv6 nd suppress-ra¶
Don’t send router advertisement messages.
Configuring the IPv6 prefix to include in router advertisements. Several prefix specific optional parameters and flags may follow:
valid-lifetime: the length of time in seconds during what the prefix is valid for the purpose of on-link determination. Value
infiniterepresents infinity (i.e. a value of all one bits (
preferred-lifetime: the length of time in seconds during what addresses generated from the prefix remain preferred. Value
infiniterepresents infinity. Range:
off-link: indicates that advertisement makes no statement about on-link or off-link properties of the prefix. Default: not set, i.e. this prefix can be used for on-link determination.
no-autoconfig: indicates to hosts on the local link that the specified prefix cannot be used for IPv6 autoconfiguration.
Default: not set, i.e. prefix can be used for autoconfiguration.
router-address: indicates to hosts on the local link that the specified prefix contains a complete IP address by setting R flag.
Default: not set, i.e. hosts do not assume a complete IP address is placed.
[no] ipv6 nd ra-interval [(1-1800)]¶
The maximum time allowed between sending unsolicited multicast router advertisements from the interface, in seconds. Default:
[no] ipv6 nd ra-interval [msec (70-1800000)]¶
The maximum time allowed between sending unsolicited multicast router advertisements from the interface, in milliseconds. Default:
[no] ipv6 nd ra-lifetime [(0-9000)]¶
The value to be placed in the Router Lifetime field of router advertisements sent from the interface, in seconds. Indicates the usefulness of the router as a default router on this interface. Setting the value to zero indicates that the router should not be considered a default router on this interface. Must be either zero or between value specified with
ipv6 nd ra-interval(or default) and 9000 seconds. Default:
[no] ipv6 nd reachable-time [(1-3600000)]¶
The value to be placed in the Reachable Time field in the Router Advertisement messages sent by the router, in milliseconds. The configured time enables the router to detect unavailable neighbors. The value zero means unspecified (by this router). Default:
[no] ipv6 nd managed-config-flag¶
Set/unset flag in IPv6 router advertisements which indicates to hosts that they should use managed (stateful) protocol for addresses autoconfiguration in addition to any addresses autoconfigured using stateless address autoconfiguration. Default: not set
[no] ipv6 nd other-config-flag¶
Set/unset flag in IPv6 router advertisements which indicates to hosts that they should use administered (stateful) protocol to obtain autoconfiguration information other than addresses. Default: not set
[no] ipv6 nd home-agent-config-flag¶
Set/unset flag in IPv6 router advertisements which indicates to hosts that the router acts as a Home Agent and includes a Home Agent Option. Default: not set
[no] ipv6 nd home-agent-preference [(0-65535)]¶
The value to be placed in Home Agent Option, when Home Agent config flag is set, which indicates to hosts Home Agent preference. The default value of 0 stands for the lowest preference possible. Default:
[no] ipv6 nd home-agent-lifetime [(0-65520)]¶
The value to be placed in Home Agent Option, when Home Agent config flag is set, which indicates to hosts Home Agent Lifetime. The default value of 0 means to place the current Router Lifetime value.
[no] ipv6 nd adv-interval-option¶
Include an Advertisement Interval option which indicates to hosts the maximum time, in milliseconds, between successive unsolicited Router Advertisements. Default: not set
[no] ipv6 nd router-preference [(high|medium|low)]¶
Set default router preference in IPv6 router advertisements per RFC4191. Default: medium
[no] ipv6 nd mtu [(1-65535)]¶
Include an MTU (type 5) option in each RA packet to assist the attached hosts in proper interface configuration. The announced value is not verified to be consistent with router interface MTU.
- Default: don’t advertise any MTU option.::
- interface eth0
- no ipv6 nd suppress-ra ipv6 nd prefix 2001:0DB8:5009::/64
