Configure IPv6 Routing with RIPng

Use RIPng for dynamic routing between IPv6 networks.

When you enable RIPng, a dynamic routing policy called DR-RIPng-Allow is automatically created. You can edit this policy to add authentication and restrict the policy to listen on only the correct interfaces. The DR-RIPng-Allow policy is configured to allow RIPng multicasts to the reserved multicast address for RIPng, FF02::9.

After you configure the Firebox and the BGP router, you can look at the routes table to verify that the Firebox has received route updates from the RIPng router.

To see the dynamic routes, from Firebox System Manager select the Status Report tab.

To see the dynamic routes, from Fireware Web UI select System Status > Routes.
