IPv6 Packet Tracer Lab

Cisco Packet-Tracer IPv6 Router Configuration
In this exercise, you will use Packet Tracer to configure Cisco Routers to route between two LANs connected by a Serial connection using IPv6 only.

Exit configuration mode and save the router’s running-config: R1(config)# exit R1# R1# write Building configuration. On Router R1. Configure the FastEthernet 0/0 interface to (a) enable IPv6. Repeat steps 1 through 5 on router R1 being sure to use the IPv6 addresses listed in the Addressing table for R2. one per line. 2. Enable the global routing of IPv6 on R1 by entering IPv6 unicast-routing. R1(config)# ipv6 unicast-routing R1(config)# 3.IPv6 Packet Tracer Lab Instructions 1. R1(config)# End with CNTL/Z. Configure the Serial 0/0/0 interface to (a) enable IPv6. use the command line interface (CLI) to access the Cisco IOS prompt. and (d) activate the interface (Note: R1 has the DCE end of the serial cable so needs to set the clock rate for the serial line. this will not need to be done on router R1): R1(config)# interface Serial 0/0/0 R1(config-if)# ipv6 enable R1(config-if)# ipv6 address FC0:0:0:9::1/64 R1(config-if)# ipv6 rip RIP enable R1(config-if)# clock rate 64000 R1(config-if)# no shutdown R1(config-if)# exit R1(config)# 5. Enter Privilege mode (enable) and move to configuration mode (config term): R1> enable R1# config term Enter configuration commands. (You should not set the clock rate on the serial line for Router R2.) Page 2 of 4 as of 12/6/2010 ... (b) assign the IPv6 address assigned in the addressing table above. (b) assign the IPv6 address assigned in the addressing table above. [OK] R1# 6. (c) enable the IPv6 version of rip on this interface. (c) enable the IPv6 version of rip on this interface. and (d) activate the interface: R1(config)# interface FastEthernet 0/0 R1(config-if)# ipv6 enable R1(config-if)# ipv6 address 2001:db8:0:1::1/64 R1(config-if)# ipv6 rip RIP enable R1(config-if)# no shutdown R1(config-if)# exit R1(config)# 4.

You should see that the FastEthernet port is set to Auto Config for IPv6 and the listed IPv6 address has the network prefix specified on the network by the connected router. Open the PC1 object in Packet Tracer (click on the PC1 icon). click on Settings and then set the IPv6 gateway to be autoconfigured: Figure 2: PC1 IPv6 Gateway setting 8. On the Config tab.IPv6 Packet Tracer Lab 7. Repeat steps 7 and 8 for PC2. Check the FastEthernet setting for PC1. Figure 3: PC1 FastEthernet setting 9.
