IPv6 Routing Protocols

Like IPv4, IPv6 also supports routing protocols that allow routers to exchange information about connected networks. IPv6 routing protocols can be internal (RIPng, EIGRP for IPv6 ...) and external (BGP).

As with IPv4, IPv6 routing protocols can be vector and link state. An example of a distance vector protocol is RIPng with the number of Kmtri jumps. An example of a link state routing protocol is OSPF with cost as a measure.

IPv6 supports the following routing protocols:

  • RIPng (the new generation of RIP)
  • OSPFv3
  • EIGRP for IPv6
  • IS-IS for IPv6
  • MP-BGP4 (Multiprotocol BGP-4)
