    Configuring Proxy Neighbor Advertisements

    Much like proxy ARP, proxy Neighbor Discovery is a means by which one interface responds to a Neighbor Discovery query on behalf of another interface.

    To configure proxy Neighbor Discovery:

    1. Access an IPv6 interface.
      host1(config)#interface fastEthernet 0/0 host1(config-if)#
    2. Enable Neighbor Discovery on the current interface.
      host1(config-if)#ipv6 nd

      Note: This command is redundant when configuring Neighbor Discovery over Ethernet, because neighbor solicitations and advertisements are automatically sent on Ethernet interfaces.

    3. Enable IPv6 neighbor proxy.
      host1(config-if)#ipv6 nd proxy
