IPv6 and Switch compatibility

Does anyone know if there is a conflict with 2950's switches running IPv6? Thank you.

Re: IPv6 and Switch compatibility

Looks like it's not officially supported. From the command reference on cisco.com:

"Layer 3 IP version 6 (IPv6) packets are treated as non-IP packets."

Looking at the switch matrix it looks like the 3560's are the lowest model that supports IPv6.

HTH and please rate.

Re: IPv6 and Switch compatibility

I don't see any issue to pass IPv6 traffic through the 2950. The issue is if you want to manage the 2950 via IPv6 as it is not supported.

Hope this helps,
