router : ripng
 
ripng
Use this command to configure the “next generation” Routing Information Protocol (RIPng) on the FortiGate unit. RIPng is a distance-vector routing protocol intended for small, relatively homogeneous, IPv6 networks. RIPng uses hop count as its routing metric. Each network is usually counted as one hop. The network diameter is limited to 15 hops. RIPng is defined in RFC 2080.

Variable
Description
Default
default-information-originate {enable | disable}
Enter enable to advertise a default static route into RIPng.
disable
default-metric <metric_integer>
For non-default routes in the static routing table and directly connected networks the default metric is the metric that the FortiGate unit advertises to adjacent routers. This metric is added to the metrics of learned routes. The default metric can be a number from 1 to 16.
1
garbage-timer <timer_integer>
The time in seconds that must elapse after the timeout interval for a route expires, before RIPng deletes the route. If RIPng receives an update for the route after the timeout timer expires but before the garbage timer expires then the entry is switched back to reachable.
RIP timer defaults are effective in most configurations. All routers and access servers in the network should have the same RIP timer settings.
The update timer interval can not be larger than the garbage timer interval.
Range 5 to 2 147 483 647 seconds.
120
passive-interface <name_str>
Block RIPng broadcasts on the specified interface. You can use “config neighbor” and the passive interface command to allow RIPng to send unicast updates to the specified neighbor while blocking broadcast updates on the specified interface.
No default.
timeout-timer <timer_integer>
The time interval in seconds after which a route is declared unreachable. The route is removed from the routing table. RIP holds the route until the garbage timer expires and then deletes the route. If RIP receives an update for the route before the timeout timer expires, then the timeout-timer is restarted. If RIP receives an update for the route after the timeout timer expires but before the garbage timer expires then the entry is switched back to reachable. The value of the timeout timer should be at least three times the value of the update timer.
RIP timer defaults are effective in most configurations. All routers and access servers in the network should have the same RIP timer settings.
The update timer interval can not be larger than the timeout timer interval.
Range 5 to 2 147 483 647 seconds.
180
update-timer <timer_integer>
The time interval in seconds between RIP updates.
RIP timer defaults are effective in most configurations. All routers and access servers in the network should have the same RIP timer settings.
The update timer interval can not be larger than timeout or garbage timer intervals.
Range 5 to 2 147 483 647 seconds.

config aggregate-address
Use this subcommand to configure aggregate address prefixes.
Variable
Description
Default
edit <entry-id>
Enter an entry number for the aggregate address list.
 
prefix6 <aggregate_prefix>
Enter the prefix for the aggregate address.
