Now just in case if you didnít know, by default once you assign an IPv6 address to a Cisco routerís interface; that router is then automatically capable of being reached by using the Hyper Text Transfer Protocol or HTTP.

So, if you donít want a particular Cisco IPv6 router to have the capability of being reached via HTTP, youíll have to disable http access to the router; by performing the following steps on the router:


Router#configure terminal
Router(config)#no ip http server
Router#copy run start

Steps explained:

Step #1

1. Router>enable

Puts router into Privileged EXEC mode.

Step #2

2. Router#configure terminal

Puts router into Global configuration mode.

Step #3

3. Router(config)#no ip http server

Disables HTTP access to the router.

Step #4

4. Router(config)#exit

Causes router to exit global configuration mode and re-enters into Privileged EXEC mode.

Step #5

5. Router#copy run start

Saves the contents of the running-config to local Non -Volatile Random Access Memory (NVRAM).

I invite you to visit my website at where youíll find the latest information regarding Cisco IPv6 Design and Implementation Techniques. And, also learn more about the new "Cisco IPv6 Video Accelerated Training Course" which contains over 3000 videos that will teach you all you need to know about Designing, Building, and Deploying Cisco IPv6 networks. (Guaranteed)

To your success,
