ipv6 address network not work

  • I an using ipv6 network visit ipv6 network not work, only ipv4 address is work.

    could you tell me how fix it?

  • Hi,

    To fix it, you - and we - should know what's wrong.
    So, tell us about it ;)
    I can guarantee you that I visit this forum, and posting right know, using IPv6. My ISP doesn't offer me any IPv6 networking, so I'm using IPv6-tunnel from, like you.

    Sure looks like its working to me..  I use HE.. going to need a bit more info to try and help you..

    What doesn't seem to be working is the IP you posted from that you see in the bottom right of your posts.  Works when you post via ipv4, but seems when you post via ipv6 its just blank?  See 2nd pic.

  • ( test with IPv6 )

    so do you see your ipv6 IP in the bottom right corner or is just blank?

  • Blank when posting using IPv6.
    Probably SMF isn't 100 % IPv6 ready  ;)

    yeah my guess as well.  Prob should put in a post about that on the feedback section

  • I repaired it  ;D

    edit : reverse DNS brings you right to my PC  :o

    root@ns311465:~# host 2001:470:1f13:5c0:2::c6 domain name pointer

    The good old 'nasty' NAT isn't protecting me anymore …. good things I use a real firewall : pfSense  ;D

    repaired what?  The forum not showing your ipv6 as the posting IP?

  • @johnpoz:

    repaired what?  The forum not showing your ipv6 as the posting IP?

    I was kidding. I inserted my IPv6 myself - but maintain that I'm using IPv6 right now.

    @yon : sorry for hijacking your question.

    yon didn't really have a valid question did he ;)  Do you go tot he mechanic and tell your car is broke.  Or do you actually give him something to work with.  Clearly pfsense both their website and the forums are working via ipv6.  We are two examples of this working with HE.

    So without more info can not help yon with his issue.  I did post in the feedback about the smf showing just blank when you use ipv6 to post.  Lets see if that gets any responses, etc.

    My guess with yon issue would be dns related.  He is worried about leaking and wants to use dnscrypt, etc.  Lots of posts from him about this as I recall.  So if he is saying that can not get to pfsense via ipv6 it would be something to do with his dns.

    Do a simple query for AAAA, does that come back, if so do a traceroute via ipv6.. What do you get then?  Do you have your browser set to only use ipv4? etc.
