DMVPN IPv6 over IPv4

This topic is to discuss the following lesson:

Hi Rene
i suspect a typo error:

Spoke1(config-if)#ipv6 nhrp map 2001:DB8::1/128 192.168.123.1

should be

Spoke1(config-if)#ipv6 nhrp map 2001:DB8::1/64 192.168.123.1

same for spoke2

thank you to confirm

Cheers

Hi Fethi,

The /128 addresses are correct. It’s a specific mapping between the IPv6 address and the IPv4 address.

Hi
Is possible to transport ipv4 and ipv6 addresses in the same tunnel interface?

If I debug the tunnel of the hub with debug tunnel comand , I recive this output.

R1-Hub#ping 2001:db8::2
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 2001:DB8::2, timeout is 2 seconds:

Success rate is 0 percent (0/5)

Thanks

EDIT…

I was able to configure the ipv6 and ipv4 in the same tunnel.

Hello Giovanni

It is possible to tunnel both IPv4 and IPv6 over the same GRE tunnel, and since DMVPN is based on GRE, it can be done, as you yourself have provided with your configuration.

Can you share with us the difference between your configurations when you received the “Encap failed” message and the successful tunneling of both protocols?

Thanks!

Laz

The log message was caused by a wrong configuration on Spokes.
The command below was missing in the tunnel configuration.

ipv6 nhrp nhs 2001:DB8::1

Hello Giovanni

Ah, perfect, thanks for clarifying that. That’s useful information for all of our readers.

Thanks for being a valuable member!
