 IPv6 Example

The IPv6 access-list must be applied as an extended, named access-list.

    !--- Configure the access-list.

    ipv6 access-list iacl

    !--- Deny your space as source from entering your AS.
    !--- Deploy only at the AS edge.

     deny ipv6 YOUR_CIDR_BLOCK_IPV6 any

    !--- Permit multiprotocol BGP.

     permit tcp host bgp_peer_ipv6 host router_ipv6 eq bgp
     permit tcp host bgp_peer_ipv6 eq bgp host router_ipv6

    !--- Deny access to internal infrastructure addresses.

    !--- Permit transit traffic.

     permit ipv6 any any
