CISCO CCNA 200-301 Q56

You are configuring all your devices for IPv6. Which of the following is the only device that requires the ipv6 unicast-routing command?

A. Layer 2 switch
B. Router
C. Adaptive security appliance
D. Wireless AP

Correct Answers: B

Only the router requires the ipv6 unicast-routing command. The command ipv6 unicast-routing enables the routing of IPv6 packets on a router. It is not required when you are simply configuring interfaces on devices that participate in IPv6.

A Layer 2 switch can have an IPv6 address applied to its management interface and to any VLAN interfaces. However, because the switch does no routing, it does not require the ipv6 unicast-routing command.

An adaptive security appliance (ASA) can also have IPv6 addresses applied to its interfaces and can route both IPv6 and IPv4 traffic. However, it does not require the ipv6 unicast-routing command.
A wireless access point differs from a wireless router in that it operates as a switch or hub and does no routing. Therefore, it does not require this command.
