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;
