When creating Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) for IPv6, Cisco made the new EIGRP for IPv6 as much like EIGRP for IPv4 as possible. How close are they? Incredibly close, even closer than the IPv4 and IPv6 versions of the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol. With EIGRP, the only noticeable difference is the configuration, which enables EIGRP for IPv6 directly on the interfaces and, of course, the use of IPv6 addresses and prefixes. However, the old and new EIGRP protocols are practically twins when it comes to the concepts, show commands, and troubleshooting steps.

This chapter has two major sections. The first major section shows the EIGRP for IPv6 configuration options for EIGRP ...
