[EOL/EOE] NSM and ScreenOS IPv6 compatibility



Article ID: KB16804 KB Last Updated: 18 Oct 2020Version: 3.0

Note: A product listed in this article has either reached hardware End of Life (EOL) OR software End of Engineering (EOE).  Refer to End of Life Products & Milestones for the EOL, EOE, and End of Support (EOS) dates.

This article provides the minimum version requirements for the compatibility of NSM and IPV6 configuration on ScreenOS.


In order to completely manage IPv6 configuration from NSM, the minimum version requirements are as follows:

  • NSM 2009.1r1 and later

  • ScreenOS 6.3 and later

Even though ScreenOS 6.1 version supports IPv6, it actually does not send IPv6 configuration as part of the configuration data file to NSM. Due to this behavior, NSM will not be able to understand that the device has IPV6 enabled.  Only in 6.3.x version onwards does ScreenOS devices send IPv6 configuration information to NSM as part of config data file.
