03/26/2020 6 13214
Configure static Neighbor Discovery Protocol when neighbor cannot be dynamically discovered (e.g. the neighbor appliance does not properly support NDP).
The firewall is directly connected to an IPv6 appliance and there is no entries in the NDP cache table as following.
Under this situation, the neighbor is unreachable.
Hereby, we can configure a static NDP engtry for IPv6 traffic.
Navigate to Network | Neighbor Discovery page.
Step 1: Click on Add button of Static NDP Entries.
- In the IP Address field, enter the IPv6 address for the remote device.
- In the Interface pulldown menu, select the interface on the firewall that will be used for the entry.
- In the MAC Address field, enter the MAC address of the remote device.
- Click OK.
The neighbor was manually configured as a static neighbor.
Step 2: Go to System | Diagnostics page
Ping the Neighbor, the static NDP entry takes effect.
