Prefix

Prefix specifies the prefix for the route. This setting should be specified as <address>/<prefix length> (for example, 10.0.0.0/8 or ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff::0/64).

The prefix length is specified in bits. All bits of the prefix address after the first n bits (where n is the prefix length) must be zero.

noteNote
For the IPv6 protocol, the prefix length is 64, with one exception. If the first 16 bits of the prefix address are zero, the prefix length can vary between 0 and 128.

Values
