Topology Example

Before enabling PIMv6 in a router, you must configure the router and the host with the IP address and VLAN connectivity. The following example topology is referenced in the configuration steps in this guide.

This topology consists of two routers (router A and router B) with two physical interfaces (P1 and P2), which are extreme-ethernet 0/1 and extreme-ethernet 0/2 respectively.

The following table shows the configuration values of the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses for each interface.

Switch or Host
