  1. awesome lesson. just a question rene, when we activate the RIP under the interface it does 2 things

    Activate the prefix on the interface in RIPNG.
    Send RIPNG updates out of this interface.

    do we have a passive interface on this? is this the same as RIP or any routing protocol in IPv4 that if the interface is going to your LAN network, it is much better not to Send Routing updates to that interface. We suppressed it by using Passive Interface so that we will only advertise the network on that interface. This is for security purposes right?

    Thank you!

  2. Hi Casper,

    These link-local addresses are only valid on the link and unroutable so that’s why it is no problem to have the same address on multiple interfaces.


  3. Is it possible to work with summarized routes in the dynamic routing protocol, as well as in static routing?

  4. Hi, Rene,

    Just wondering what if I manually set different link-local address on the different interface in a router when setup RIPNG, is there any error message popup?

  5. Hello Hang.

    If you manually set up different link-local addresses on the interfaces of a router, even if you have RIPNG set up, there shouldn’t be any error messages. This is especially the case with RIPNG because you don’t have any network commands to indicate the subnet on which RIP will be participating. You specifiy the interface on which RIP will be function and this allows you to change the IPv6 address (link local or otherwise) without any problems on your configuration).

    I hope this has been helpful!
