Fireware XTM Web UI — Dynamic Routing RIPng page

  1. Copy and paste the text of your routing daemon configuration file in the window.
  1. Click Save.

    If necessary, Fireware XTM automatically adds the required dynamic routing policy or enables an existing dynamic routing policy, if one exists.

When you enable RIPng, the 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 XTM device and the RIPng router, select System Status > Routes and verify that the XTM device has received route updates from the RIPng router.
