IPv6 Routing Protocols
All of the routing protocols we’ve already discussed have been upgraded for use in IPv6 networks. Also, many of the functions and configurations that we’ve already learned will be used in almost the same way as they’re used now. Knowing that broadcasts have been eliminated in IPv6, it follows that any protocols that use entirely broadcast traffic will go the way of the dodo—but unlike with the dodo, it’ll be good to say goodbye to these bandwidth-hogging, performance-annihilating little gremlins!
The routing protocols that we’ll still use in IPv6 have new names and a facelift. Let’s talk about a few of them now.
First on the list is RIPng (next generation). Those of you who have been in IT for awhile know that RIP has worked ...
