Configuring a BFD helper session by using IPv6 addressing
You can configure a static route from a router R1 to another router R2, without configuring another static route from R2 to R1. In such a case, you can enable BFD only from R1 to R2 with static route as the client. BFD must be configured at both routers for it to be operational, you can use a helper session to compensate the lack of a static route from R2 to R1.
source anyparameter is not supported for the helper session command.
- R1 interface address facing R2—
- R2 interface address facing R1—
