Use this procedure to add a persistent IPv6 static route to support IPv6-compliant agents.

Before you begin 

You must access the appliance operating system to add a static route. For information, see Operating System Access.

Procedure 

  1. Log on to the appliance with the user name rsaadmin and the operating system password.

  2. View the current routing table, type:

    sudo ip -6 route show

  3. To add a persistent IPv6 route entry to a network interface routing file, type:

    sudo bash -c "echo 'destination gateway prefix_length - -' >> /etc/sysconfig/network/ifroute-eth0"

    where:

    • destinationspecifies the IP address of the network or host for which you are adding a static route. Any network traffic to the destination IP address follows the route defined by the entry.

    • gatewayspecifies the IP address of the node that will route traffic to the destination network or host.

    • prefix_length specifies the prefix length associated with the destination IP address.

    • eth0specifies the network interface, for example, eth0 or eth1.

    IPv6 special notation can be used. For example, to add a persistent static route that sends all network traffic for IPv6-compliant agents in the 2005::0/64 network to the gateway 2001::2, type:

    sudo bash -c "echo '2005::0 2001::2 64 - -' >> /etc/sysconfig/network/ifroute-eth0"

  4. To add a persistent IPv6 route entry to the corresponding table, type:

    sudo bash -c "echo 'destination gateway prefix_length - -' >> /etc/sysconfig/network/ifroute-eth0 table Teth0"

    where:

    • destination specifies the IP address of the network or host for which you are adding a static route. Any network traffic to the destination IP address follows the route defined by the entry.

    • gateway specifies the IP address of the node that will route traffic to the destination network or host.

    • prefix_length specifies the prefix length associated with the destination IP address.

    • eth0 specifies the network interface, for example, eth0 or eth1.

    • Teth0 specifies the the table in the network interface routing file, such as Teth0 for the interface eth0.

    IPv6 special notation can be used. For example, to add a persistent static route that sends all network traffic for IPv6-compliant agents in the 2005::0/64 network to the gateway 2001::2, type:

    sudo bash -c "echo '2005::0 2001::2 64 - -' >> /etc/sysconfig/network/ifroute-eth0 table Teth0"

  5. Restart the network services to apply the new static route. Type:

    sudo service network restart

    and press ENTER.
