The IPv6 routing protocols still use the longest-match prefix as the routing algorithm for route selection, as their equivalents did in IPv4. However, because the IPv6 protocols are defined as a new family of protocols, the IPv6 routing table is handled and managed separately from the IPv4 routing table when both protocols are enabled simultaneously on a router.
The following sections cover these topics:
IPv6 routing table on the router— This section briefly describes the commands used to display the IPv6 routing table in the Cisco IOS Software technology.
Administrative distances of the routing protocols— The administrative distances of the IPv6-supported routing protocols remain unchanged in comparison with ...
