EIGRP (Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol) for IPv6 is the routing protocol used to exchange routing information between routers in an IPv6 network. The configuration of EIGRP for IPv6 involves the following steps:

  1. Specify the EIGRP routing process: EIGRP for IPv6 requires a unique routing process identifier (PID) to differentiate between multiple EIGRP processes that may run on the same router. The PID is a number between 1 and 65535, and it must match on all routers participating in the EIGRP process.

  2. Enable EIGRP for IPv6 on the interfaces: The next step is to enable EIGRP for IPv6 on the router's interfaces that participate in the EIGRP process. This can be done globally or directly on the interface. When enabled directly on the interface, the router will only form EIGRP neighbor relationships with routers connected to that interface.

  3. Configure EIGRP for IPv6 neighbors: EIGRP for IPv6 uses a neighbor relationship to exchange routing information between routers. A neighbor is a router that has formed an adjacency with the local router, and the two routers exchange routing updates with each other. In EIGRP for IPv6, neighbors can be configured directly by specifying their IPv6 addresses, or they can be discovered automatically through a process known as neighbor discovery.

  4. Configure EIGRP for IPv6 parameters: EIGRP for IPv6 has several configurable parameters that can be used to fine-tune the routing protocol's behavior. These include the hold time, hello interval, metric weights, and maximum hop count. These parameters can be set globally or directly on the interface.

  5. Verify EIGRP for IPv6 configuration: Once the EIGRP for IPv6 configuration is complete, it's essential to verify that the routing protocol is working correctly. This can be done by checking the EIGRP neighbor table, the routing table
