Using OSPFv3 in Packet Tracer

Hi, 

Hope I wound up in the right forum..... I'm trying to use OSPFv3 on packet tracer but the IOS won't accept the ospfv3 keyword when I try to define the router (router ospfv3 xx). The OSPFv3 keyword is not in the Help section - I'm using Packet Tracer version 7.2.1.0218 downloaded about a month ago. 

I would appreciate any pointers ! Thanks

Re: Using OSPFv3 in Packet Tracer

Thank you ! Would this be the 'traditional mode' commands for OSPFv3 ? On our switch you can use the OSFPv3 syntax... I was trying with that.

Re: Using OSPFv3 in Packet Tracer

Hi, thanks for your reply. It works now, I was trying to use the other Ospfv3 syntax. Is this the 'traditional mode' of Ospf commands?

Re: Using OSPFv3 in Packet Tracer

Hi, 
As I am not getting routes published in my routing tables by ipv6 OSPF, I found this at the Cisco site : 


Open Shortest Path First Version 3 (OSPFv3) is a link state routing protocol. Unlike OSPFv2, which supports IPv4, the original implementation of OSPFv3 supports IPv6 (unicast only). With the introduction of OSPFv3 support for address families (AFs), OSPFv3 now can support IPv4 unicast address families.

Does it mean I have a limitation in Packet tracer ?

Re: Using OSPFv3 in Packet Tracer

@spj2019 hello,

 

to show ipv6 route, try using command below;

 

show ipv6 route

 

Packet tracer is limmited to something, if you need feature more advanced, i suggest you to use,  GNS3 or EVE-NG.
