request access-security router-advertisement-guard-forward



Initiate the forwarding state on an interface or range of interfaces for stateful IPv6 Router Advertisement (RA) guard. Stateful RA guard learns about legitimate senders of RA messages and stores this information in order to validate senders of subsequent RA messages. For example, an interface that is in the learning state and receives RA messages sent from legitimate sources will dynamically transition to the forwarding state. While the interface is in forwarding state, all RA messages received on that interface that can be validated against the configured policy are forwarded.

You can override the dynamic state transitions by requesting the forwarding state on an interface. If you issue the request for the forwarding state on an interface, the interface will remain in forwarding state until either the learning or blocking state is requested on that interface.
