NMC DOiT Vol.2 Scenario 11 – IPv6 FR, No Inverse ARP

104 Words. Plan about 0 minute(s) to read this.

I forgot to mention one important thing I learned in scenario 11.  When running IPv6 over frame-relay, you have to manually map your addresses to DLCIs.  Inverse ARP isn’t supported.  I didn’t notice this before, because in almost every lab thus far, I’ve had to disable inverse ARP for the IPv4 networks.  So naturally, I had to map the IPv6 addresses as well.  On this scenario, I was required to rely solely on inverse ARP for the IPv4.  So, I was surprised to discover that I had no IPv6 connectivity across the frame, until I mapped the addresses.
