Using a mask to configure authorized management stations

The ipv6-mask parameter controls how the switch uses an IPv6 address to determine the IPv6 addresses of authorized manager stations on your network. For example, you can specify a mask that authorizes:
  • Single station access

  • Multiple station access


Mask configuration is a method for determining the valid IPv6 addresses that are authorized for management access to the switch. In the authorized IP managers feature, the mask serves a different purpose than an IPv6 subnet mask and is applied in a different manner.
