    Introduction to BGP IPv6 In this tutorial I will be configuring the BGP for IPv6 router iBGP Full Mesh.  I will start off with the baseline show command, “show BGP IPv6, unicast summary” to display general information about IPv6 BGP neighbors. Then I am going to enable a debug command “debug BGP IPv6 unicast” to see how things unfold as I configure the BGP for IPv6 router iBGP Full Mesh. Finish with the same baseline command, “show BGP IPv6 unicast summary” to see what changed. Let’s look at the network topology. I will be configuring the BGP...
  2. How To Test Connectivity With Traceroute

    What is Traceroute? The traceroute utility checks how many “hops” (transfers through other routers or networked devices) it takes for your computer to reach a destination. You can use traceroute if you know the other computer's IP address, web site address, or name (e.g., 1.1.1.1, www.BIPmedia.com, etc). Using Traceroute To access traceroute on a Windows workstation, perform one of the following: Windows 7 or Vista: From the Start menu, in the search field, type cmd, and then press Enter. Previous versions: From the Start menu, select Run… . In the “Open:”...
  3. How To Test Connectivity With Ping

    These tests are performed using a Windows workstation. If you have a MAC or a *nix PC, the instructions will be a little different (details to be added soon). Running a Ping Ping is one of the first tools to use to point to point connectivity. It's run through the command prompt, but getting the basic information is quite easy: To run ping, type Start > Run. Type cmd in the Run window, and click OK. A black and white command line window pops up. Type ping followed by an IP...
