After waking up from cryosleep the year appears to be 2020 and there is not a single IPv4 address left on the planet. The last thing you remember are the stories about the end of IPv4 and the migration plans for IPv6…now it seems this is all reality! It’s up to you to configure RIPNG and make the network operational…resistance is futile 😉


  • You are not allowed to use IPv4 addresses.
  • You are not allowed to use any IPv6 global unicast addresses except the ones on the loopback interfaces.
  • Use the MAC-address for the last 64 bits of the IPv6 addresses required for the FastEthernet links.
  • Configure RIPNG process “GNS3VAULT” and achieve full connectivity between the networks on the loopback interfaces.

It took me 1000s of hours reading books and doing labs, making mistakes over and over again until I mastered all the routing protocols for CCNP.

Would you like to be a master of routing too? In a short time without having to read 900 page books or google the answers to your questions and browsing through forums?

I collected all my knowledge and created a single ebook for you that has everything you need to know to become a master of routing.

You will learn all the secrets about IPv6, RIPNG and more.

Does this sound interesting to you? Take a look here and let me show you how to Master CCNP ROUTE

  1. Hi,

    A point that came up in the Cisco Press practise test is that one does not need the explicit global router command [code]ipv6 router rip NAME[/code] since the interface sub-command of [code]ipv6 rip NAME enable[/code] will add that automatically if it doesn’t exists yet.


  2. Just one remark, it doesn’t make sense to run the rip proccess on loopback interface. For IPv6 routing I’d rather redistribute connected networks, because the passive-interface commnand doesn’t exist in the RIPng context.

    1. Thanks for sharing this. RIPNG and Passive Interface is kinda strange…there’s no way to do it 🙂 Redistribution is indeed a good idea.

  3. Hi Rene,

    I`m just starting with ipv6. Is it possible to establish RipNG neighborship with Link local address? We can assign it to Ro`s interfaces and run rip on it, as well as on Lo.



    1. Hi Anton,

      Only EIGRP and OSPF establish a neighbor adjacency. RIP and RIPNG don’t have neighbors, they just learn information on the interfaces.


  4. Hi Rene,

    You could use "interface range" command to enable RIPng process on several interfaces at once. Thanks for this great resource that GNS3Vault is.
