Configuring Hardware Routing for a vRouter

YCreate interfaces on hardware routers and map them to virtual NICs in the vRouter zone. Currently, only one hardware vRouter is supported with Netvisor OS.

The supported protocols are as follows:

RIPv1 — IPv4 uses UDP and port 520, and advertise address - broadcasting

RIPv2 — IPv4 uses UDP and port 520, and advertise address - 224.0.0.9

RIPng — IPv6 uses UDP and port 521, and advertise address - FF02::9

To create a hardware router on a vRouter, hwtest, use the following command:

CLI network-admin@Leaf1 > vrouter-create hwtest router-type hardware

Use the same commands as software routing to add protocols and interfaces.
