disable ripng poisonreverse

disable ripng poisonreverse {vlan vlan-name | tunnel tunnel_name | [vlan | tunnel] all}


Disables poison reverse algorithm for RIPng (Routing Information Protocol Next Generation).

Syntax Description

vlan-name Specifies an IPv6 configured VLAN (Virtual LAN).
tunnel_name Specifies an IPv6 tunnel.
all Specifies all interfaces.



Usage Guidelines

Like split horizon, poison reverse is a scheme for eliminating the possibility of loops in the routed topology. In this case, a router advertises a route over the same interface that supplied the route, but the route uses a hop count of 16, defining it as unreachable.


The following command disables the split horizon with poison reverse algorithm for RIPng:

disable ripng poisonreverse
