OSPFv3 Commands

Fireware uses the Quagga routing software suite v1.2.4, which supports most routing commands available in more recent versions of Quagga. For more information about Quagga commands, see Quagga Routing Suite Documentation.

To create or modify a routing configuration file, you must use the correct routing commands. This list includes some of the supported routing commands for OSPFv3. The sections must appear in the configuration file in the same order they appear in this list. You can also use the sample text found in the Sample OSPFv3 Routing Configuration File.

The OSPFv3 area, access-list, and default-information originate commands are not supported.

Section Command Description

Configure Interface Properties

  interface eth[N] Begin section to set properties for interface
  ipv6 ospf6 cost [1-65535] Set link cost for the interface (see OSP Interface Cost table below)
  ipv6 ospf6 hello-interval [1-65535] Set interval to send hello packets; default is 10 seconds
  ipv6 ospf6 dead-interval [1-65535] Set interval after last hello from a neighbor before declaring it down; default is 40 seconds
  ipv6 ospf6 retransmit-interval [1-65535] Set interval between link-state advertisements (LSA) retransmissions; default is 5 seconds
  ipv6 ospf6 transmit-delay [1-3600] Set time required to send LSA update; default is 1 second
  ipv6 ospf6 priority [0-255] Set route priority; high value increases eligibility to become the designated router (DR)
  ipv6 ospf6 passive Disable OSPF announcement for the interface
Configure OSPFv3 Routing Daemon

router ospf6

Enable OSPF6 daemon
  router-id [A.B.C.D] set router ID for OSPF6 manually; router determines its own ID if not set
Set OSPF network and area properties.
*The area variable can be typed in two formats: [W.X.Y.Z]; or as an integer [Z].  
  interface eth[N] area [W.X.Y.Z] Bind interface to area and send OSPFv3 packets
Redistribute OSPF Routes
  redistribute static Redistribute firewall static routes to OSPFv3
  redistribute connected Redistribute routes from all interfaces to OSPFv3
  redistribute connected route-map [MAPNAME]

Redistribute routes from all interfaces to OSPFv3, , with a route map filter (mapname)

Configure Route Redistribution with Access Lists and Route Maps
  ipv6 prefix-list [LISTNAME] [PERMIT|DENY] [A,B,C,D/M | ANY] Create a prefix list to allow or deny route redistribution
