  1. Why do you have to activate OSPF on the interface? You don’t have to do this for IPv4.

  2. This question was originally posted by @maxturpin, I’m not sure why it has changed ownership. However, I will answer the question here.

    OSPFv3 has a different philosophy than OSPFv2 for IPv4. In IPv4, OSPF is enabled globally and the participating networks are added using the network command. OSPFv3 functions differently.

  4. Hi Vinod,

    Good question, I never really noticed it before. The answer is in the RFC:

For example, this reference could be used to attach BGP path attributes to external routes.

    The external route tag is present in the AS-external-LSA if and only if the AS-external-LSA’s bit T i
