configure ripng import-policy

configure ripng import-policy [policy-name | none]


Configures the import policy for RIPng.

Syntax Description

policy-name Specifies the policy.


No policy.

Usage Guidelines

Use this command to configure the policy to be applied to RIPng routes installed into the system routing table from the RIPng routing process. This policy can be used to modify parameters associated with routes installed into the routing table. The import policy cannot be used to determine the routes to be added to the routing table.

Use the none option to remove the import policy.

The following is a sample policy file that can be used with RIPng. It changes the metric to 12 for any routes from the subnets 2001:db8:2ccc::/64 and 2001:db8:2ccd::/64:

entry filter_routes {
    	If match any{
        	nlri 2001:db8:2ccc:: /64;
            nlri 2001:db8:2ccd:: /64;
	    then {
	    cost 12;


The following example applies the policy campuseast to RIPng routes:
configure ripng import-policy campuseast
