    Configuring Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces for IPv6 (SRC CLI)

    You can configure the Gigabit Ethernet interfaces to use IPv4 or IPv6 to allow remote access to the C Series Controller. You can specify an IP address with mask or a broadcast address with mask for an interface.

    Use the following configuration statement to configure Gigabit Ethernet interfaces to use IPv6 at the [edit] hierarchy level:

    interfaces name unit unit-number family inet6 address address ;

    To configure a Gigabit Ethernet interface to use IPv6:

    1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that configures the interface.
      [edit]user@host# edit interfaces name unit unit-number

      where unit-number is a number that you can assign for a logical interface identifier.

      For example:

      [edit]user@host# edit interfaces eth0
    2. Specify the unit, family, and IP address for the interface.
      [edit interfaces eth0]user@host# set unit number family inet6 address address

      For example:

      [edit interfaces eth0]user@host# set unit 0 family inet6 address 2001:DB8:10AB:CD30::1/64
    3. Verify the interface configuration.
      [edit interfaces eth0]
      user@host# show
      unit 0 {
        family { 
          inet6 { 
            address 10AB:0:0:CD30::/20;
