16.7. OSPFv6

OSPF version 3 (OSPFv6) is a routing protocol which is described in RFC 2740. OSPFv6 is for IPv6 only. It is not implemented completely and might lack some features.

You can find the OSPFv6 Settings at Routing → OSPFv6.

You can set a Router ID that is advertised or let the system configure one automaticlly.

Main Area the main Area of this OSPF instance.

Redistribute Kernel Routes lets OSPFv6 automatically distribute Kernel Routes.

Redistribute Static Routes lets OSPFv6 automatically distribute Static Routes.

Redistribute Connected Routes lets OSPFv6 automatically distribute Connected Routes.

Please be aware that VT AIR static routes are classified as kernel routes.

Networks let you specify which interface will be advertised if it is in that network. Please be aware that OSPFv6 only advertises networks, that the host system has an IP address in. You can not advertise random networks.

16.7.1. OSPFv6 Interface

Each OSPFv6 Interface that you want to advertise needs to be defined under Routing → OSPFv6 → OSPFv6 Interface.

Interface sets the interface and can only be used once.

Network Type will be detected automatically but you can override it here.

Interface Area must be set to the correct area of the interface.

Metric for this interface if you want to override it.

Priority for the DR selection.
