In 15.x releases IPv6 static and RIP routing is supported with IP Base as
well. This is the case for the regular, -E, and -X series switches.

To use all IPv6 features in this chapter, the switch or stack master must
be running the IP services feature set. Switches running the IP base
feature set support only IPv6 static routing and RIP for IPv6.



Best regards,
