Support for IPv6 127-bit subnet mask on point-to-point networks

Hello Community,

Running MLXe boxes with 5.3.0b, I was wondering if /127 masks on p2p interfaces were supported ?

According to RFC6164, it should be :

ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc6164.txt

I have found no mention of it in NetIron ConfGuide 5.3.0a. I will be testing it anyway but wanted feedbacks from the community. Anyone running it in production environment successfully ?

More Specifically, is the first address  Prefixe::0000/127 usable ?

Thank you.

Best.

Y.
