    Establishing an IPv6 Static Route

    You can set a destination to receive and send traffic by a specific route through the network.

    For null 0 interfaces, you can use the reject keyword to enable the sending of ICMP unreachable messages to the originator for discarded ping and traceroute packets that reach the null 0 interface with a static route. Alternatively, you can use the discard keyword to disable the sending of ICMP unreachable messages to the originator for such dropped packets.

    You can assign optional route tags for IPv6 static routes. The route tag is a 32-bit number in the range 0-4294967295. The default tag value is 0.


    • You must configure an IPv6 license using the license ipv6 command before using the IPv6 routing protocol configuration commands on the E Series router.
    • All IPv6 routing protocol configurations are removed from the virtual router when you issue the no ipv6 command.

    To establish an IPv6 static route:

    • Issue the ipv6 route command in Global Configuration mode.
      host1(config)#ipv6 route 7fff::0/16 1::1

      Use the no version to remove a static route from the routing table.
