This command allows you to configure the IPv6 hop-limit. This hop-limit is used in all originated IPv6 packets, and (if router discovery is enabled) in outgoing Router Advertisement packets as well.
|hop_limit||Hop limit for all originated IPv6 packets, and the advertised hop-limit for Router Advertisements. Hop limit value is between 1 and 255. Default is 64.|
|dont-specify-in-ra||Sets the advertised hop-limit in Router Advertisements to zero.|
Use this command to configure the IPv6 hop-limit. The hop-limit is used in all originated IPv6 packets, and (if router discovery is enabled) in outgoing Router Advertisement packets as well.
The 0 value is special and used only in outgoing Router Advertisements to convey to the receiving hosts that the router has not specified a hop-limit value to be used when originating IPv6 packets. This can be configured by specifying the optional dont-specify-in-ra keyword. The hop-limit can be configured for a VLAN, all VLANs in a Virtual Router, or all VLANs in the system. By default, the hop-limit is configured for all vlans in the current Virtual Router context of the CLI.
Example output not yet available and will be provided in a future release.
