    Configuring IPv6 Protocol Parameters

    You can configure several parameters for the MobileNext Broadband Gateway that determine how the IPv6 router protocols operate:

    Before you begin configuring IPv6 protocol parameters on the broadband gateway, you should have done the following:

    • Configured the chassis of the broadband gateway
    • Configured the interfaces of the broadband gateway
    • Configured the general parameters for the broadband gateway

    To determine the IPv6 router protocol behavior, you configure a series of related timers and parameters used in the IPv6 header fields at the [edit ggsn-pgw ggsn-pgw-name ipv6-router-advertisement] hierarchy level. The parameters apply to a particular gateway.

    To configure the IPv6 router protocol parameters:

    1. Configure the current-hop-limit.
      [edit unified-edge gateways ggsn-pgw MBG1 ipv6-router-advertisement]user@host# set current-hop-limit 0

      Note: You can configure a value from 0 through 3 hops. The default is 0.

    2. Configure the maximum-advertisement-interval.
      [edit unified-edge gateways ggsn-pgw MBG1 ipv6-router-advertisement]user@host# set maximum-advertisement-interval 21600

      Note: You can configure a value from 5400 through 21,600 seconds. The default is 21,600 seconds.

    3. Configure the maximum-initial-advertisement-interval.
      [edit unified-edge gateways ggsn-pgw MBG1 ipv6-router-advertisement]user@host# set maximum-initial-advertisement-interval 10

      Note: You can configure a value from 10 through 16 seconds. The default is 10 seconds.

    4. Configure the maximum-initial-advertisements.
      [edit ggsn-pgw bb-gw-one ipv6-router-advertisement]user@host# set maximum-initial-advertisements 10

      Note: You can configure a value from 2 through 5. The default is 3.

    5. Configure the minimum-advertisement-interval.
      [edit unified-edge gateways ggsn-pgw MBG1 ipv6-router-advertisement]user@host# set minimum-advertisement-interval 16200

      Note: You can configure a value from 3600 through 16200 seconds. The default is 16200 seconds.

    6. Configure the reachable-time.
      [edit unified-edge gateways ggsn-pgw MBG1 ipv6-router-advertisement]user@host# set reachable-time 0

      Note: You can configure a value from 0 through 3600000 milliseconds. The default is 0 milliseconds.

    7. Configure the retransmission-timer.
      [edit unified-edge gateways ggsn-pgw MBG1 ipv6-router-advertisement]user@host# set retransmission-timer 0

      Note: You can configure a value in milliseconds. There is no default.

    8. Configure the router-lifetime.
      [edit unified-edge gateways ggsn-pgw MBG1 ipv6-router-advertisement]user@host# set router-lifetime 21840

      Note: You can configure a value from 5400 through 21840 seconds. The default is 21840 seconds.
