Configuring RIPng (NSM Procedure)

The Routing Information Protocol next generation (RIPng) is an interior gateway protocol (IGP) that uses a distance-vector algorithm to determine the best route to a destination, using the hop count as the metric. RIPng is a routing protocol that exchanges routing information used to compute routes and is intended for Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6)-based networks.

To configure RIPng:

  1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
  2. Click the Device Tree tab, and then double-click the device for which you want to configure RIPng.
  3. Click the Configuration tab. In the configuration tree, select Protocols > Ripng.
  4. Configure settings as described in Table 92.
  5. Click one:
    • OK—Saves the changes.
    • Cancel—Cancels the modifications.
    • Apply—Applies the RIPng parameters.
