An example of offlink usage.


To avoid having too much client to client traffic on your network you can use 'ipv6 nd prefix default ...  off-link', don't forget to also add a route towards the interface on the router itself so:

interface GigabitEthernet0/0/0

      ipv6 address 2001:0db8:5150:F016::1/64

      ipv6 enable

      ipv6 nd reachable-time 600000

      ipv6 nd prefix default infinite infinite off-link

      ipv6 nd other-config-flag

      ipv6 nd router-preference High

      ipv6 nd ra lifetime 9000

      ipv6 nd ra dns server ...

      ipv6 dhcp server ...

      ipv6 verify unicast source reachable-via rx allow-default


ipv6 route 2001:0db8:5150:F016::/64 GigabitEthernet0/0/0

(this is a configuration optimized for wireless networks with very long timers)

This means that the client gets a default route, but no route towards the /64:


Destination                             Gateway                         Flags         Netif Expire

default                                 fe80::72ca:9bff:fe88:da83%en0   UGc             en0

::1                                     ::1                             UHL             lo0


And your client will only see the router as neighbour:

$ ndp -a -n

Neighbor                        Linklayer Address  Netif Expire    St Flgs Prbs


fe80::72ca:9bff:fe88:da83%en0   70:ca:9b:88:da:83    en0 23h59m57s S  R

So all the client to client traffic in the /64 will work, but will go via the router.
