Packet Tracer 6 Activity – Basic IPv6 Network

Overview

This Packet Tracer 6.0.1 and 6.1 networking activity involves setting up a basic IPv6 network by interconnecting two Cisco 1941 routers, two Cisco Catalyst 2960 switches, and two PCs. All of the devices in the network will need to be configured with IPv6 addressing in order to communicate. The goal is to configure the routers and PCs with the following information:

{loadposition adposition5}• On the routers configure basic security with hostnames, console and vty passwords, banner message of the day, and enable password encryption (see the network diagram in Packet Tracer),
• On the routers configure link-local and global unicast IPv6 addresses with network prefix lengths (see the network diagram),
• On the routers configure static IPv6 default routes (see the network diagram),
• On the PCs configure static IPv6 addresses with network prefix lengths, and a gateway address (see the network diagram),
• Follow the instructions in the network diagram for additional required configurations

The scoring is based on the total number of items correctly configured. Remember that when entering configurations the system is case sensitive. When you are finished, you should be able to communicate across the network (e.g. successfully ping PCB from PCA)

Notes: This version fixes the incorrect grading of the IPv6 link-local address of the R2 G0/1 interface You will need Packet Tracer version 6.1 to open this activity

BasicIPv6NetworkConfiguration.zip

Notes: There is incorrect grading of the IPv6 link-local address on the R2 G0/1 interface. Change it to FE80::1 to receive 100%. You will need Packet Tracer version 6.0.1 to open this activity.

  1. I can’t put in the static ipv6 route for some reason. On R2 i put in “ipv6 route ::/0 2001:DB8:ACAD:2::1” then it saids, “% Not allowed to point static routes through yourself”.

  2. The only way i can connect PC-B to PC-a when i am using ping is i have to have PC-B’s gateway as FE80::2 not FE80::1.
