IPv6 Advertisement Prefixes on RV180 and RV180W
IPv6 Router Advertisement Daemon (RADVD) broadcasts Router Advertisement messages and responds to Router Solicitations from clients that are trying to configure. A network prefix is contained within these Router Advertisement messages, which is necessary for a client to automatically acquire IP addresses. Multiple prefix options can be contained inside a single Router Advertisement message.
This document explains how to configure Advertisement Prefixes on the RV180 and RV180W.
Configure IPv6 Advertisement Prefixes
Step 1. Using the graphical user interface of the router, choose Networking > IPv6 > Advertisement Prefixes. The Advertisement Prefixes page opens.
Step 2. To add or modify an existing Advertisement Prefix, the options are:
Click Add to create a new Advertisement Prefix. The Add / Edit Advertisement Prefix Configuration page opens.
Check the check-box next to a single entry and click Edit to modify an existing Advertisement Prefix. The Add / Edit Advertisement Prefix Configuration page opens.
Check the check-box next to the appropriate entries and click Delete to delete the selected Advertisement Prefixes.
Step 3. Click the appropriate IPv6 Prefix Type radio button. The options are:
6to4 — The prefix is a 6to4 prefix. 6to4 allows IPv6 packets to traverse an IPv4 network.
Global/Local/ISATAP — The prefix is a Global, Local, or ISATAP prefix.
Enter the Site-level aggregation identifier (SLA ID) in the SLA ID field to specify the SLA ID portion of the 6to4 prefix.
Enter the IPv6 Prefix in the IPv6 Prefix field and enter the IPv6 Prefix Length in the IPv6 Prefix Length field,which together specify the network portion of an IPv6 address. Recommended value for IPv6 Prefix Length is 64.
Step 4. Enter in seconds how long a client can use this prefix for an address in the Prefix Lifetime field.
Step 5. Click Save at the bottom of the configuration utility to save this Advertisement Prefix. The changes will immediately show up in the next Router Advertisement message.
Step 6. Repeat Steps 2-5 to add or edit other Advertisement Prefixes.
