Monitoring Available IPv6 Routes for Reverse-Path Forwarding


Display the IPv6 routes that the router can use for RPF. You can specify the IPv6 address and the network mask to view routes to a particular destination. You can use the detail keyword to view more detailed information about routes to a particular destination. You can specify a unicast routing protocol to view routes associated with that protocol.


To display all IPv6 routes that the router can use for RPF:

host1#show ipv6 rpf-route 
Protocol/Route type codes:
  O- OSPF, E1- external type 1, E2- external type2,
  N1- NSSA external type1, N2- NSSA external type2
  L- MPLS label, V- VR/VRF, *- indirect next-hop
         Prefix/Length             Type    Dst/Met         Intf        
-------------------------------- --------- ------- --------------------
11:1:1:10::/60                   Static    1/0     ATM2/0.300          
21:2:2:20::/60                   Static    1/0     ATM2/0.300          
31:2:2:20::/60                   Connect   0/0     ATM2/0.300          
131:1:1:10::/60                  Connect   0/0     ATM2/1.1300         
1000::/64                        Static    1/0     ATM2/0.300         

To display more detailed information about an IPv6 route to a particular destination:

host1#show ipv6 rpf-route 1000::/64 detail
1000::/64 Type:Static  Distance:1  Metric:0
        NextHop:31:2:2:23::2:3  IntfIndex 18  Intf ATM2/0.300
