Zone-Based Policy Firewall IPv6 Support

The zone-based policy firewall provides advanced traffic filtering or inspection of IPv4 and IPv6 packets. In Cisco IOS XE Release 3.6S and later releases, both IPv4 and IPv6 packet inspection are enabled by default. If you need to bypass the IPv6 packet inspection, you need to configure the pass action. The pass action passes the traffic from one zone to another. When the pass action is configured, the firewall does not inspect the traffic; it passes the traffic. In the IPv6 firewall, you must explicitly configure the pass action for the return traffic by defining a zone pair and a policy map with pass action.

For detailed information about the Zone-Based Policy Firewall IPv6 Support feature, see the following Cisco document:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios-xml/ios/sec_data_zbf/configuration/xe-3s/sec-zbf-ipv6.html
