Forwarding Options

Family IPv6

Supports IPv6 protocol traffic, including Routing Information Protocol for IPv6 (RIPng).

If your device is operating in a secure context, IPv6 is disabled and the device drops IPv6 packets by default. You must enable IPv6 for a device in secure mode to enable forwarding of IPv6 packets.

Select the check box to enable forwarding of IPv6 packets. The default is flow mode.

Family ISO

Supports IS-IS traffic.

If your device is operating in a secure context, the ISO protocol is disabled by default. You must enable the ISO protocol for a device in secure mode to forward IS-IS packets.

Select the check box to enable forwarding of IS-IS packets. The default is flow mode.

Family MPLS

Supports MPLS traffic.

If your device is operating in a secure context, MPLS is disabled. You must enable the MPLS protocol to allow MPLS traffic to pass through.

Select the check box to enable forwarding of MPLS packets. The default is flow mode.

Caution: When you select this check box to enable packet-based MPLS, the following warning appears: “This will deactivate all security services. Are you sure?” If you select Yes, all security polices will be disabled. Disabling MPLS will not enable security policies. You can only enable security policies with the CLI.
