Packet Tracer 6 Activity – RIPng and IPv6

RIPng PTactivity


The goal in this activity is to configure an IPv6 network with the RIPng routing protocol. In addition to configuring RIPng on the routers, you will need to configure all of the devices in the network with the correct IPv6 addressing. The goal is to configure the routers and PCs with the following information:
• Enable IPv6 routing on all routers,
• On all routers, configure link-local and global unicast IPv6 addresses with network prefix lengths (see the network diagram),
• On routers R1, R2, and R3 configure the RIPng IPv6 routing protocol (use the name: RIP1 in all caps as the routing process name),
• On router R1, configure a default route towards the ISP router, and use RIPng to distribute that route to routers R2 and R3,
• On router ISP, configure a summary route to reach all of the subnets on R1, R2, and R3,
• On the PCs configure static IPv6 addresses with network prefix lengths, and gateway addresses (see the network diagram),
• Configure hostnames on all routers and save the running configuration to the startup-configuration file

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)
