Entering RIPng router configuration mode and setting global parameters on a cisco router

Description: This lab exercise demonstrates the commands required to enter into RIP router configuration mode and then set or change global parameters like maximum-path, redistribute etc.


1. Enter into privileged mode on router R1.
2. Enter into global configuration mode.
3. Enter the command "ipv6 unicast-routing" that enables the forwarding of IPv6 unicast datagrams globally on the router.
4. Enter into router configuration mode using the command "ipv6 router rip <word> and then set the maximum path and timer values and then issue show ipv6 rip command to verify the parameters set.

R1#configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
R1(config)#ipv6 unicast-routing
R1(config)#ipv6 router rip process1
R1(config-router)#maximum-paths 5
R1(config-router)#timers 5 15 10 30
R1#show ipv6 rip

Note: ipv6 router rip <word> command configures an IPv6 RIP routing process and enters router configuration mode for the IPv6 RIP routing process.
Use the word argument to identify a specific IPv6 RIP routing process.

The command "maximum-paths <number> defines the maximum number of equal-cost routes that IPv6 RIP can support. The number-paths argument is an integer from 1 to 64. The default for RIP is four paths.

The command timers 5 15 10 30, the update timer is reduced to 5 sec, timeouts occur after 15 sec, holddown lasts 10 sec and garbage collection is activated after 30 sec.
