AT&T U-Verse / 6rd - No IPv6 IP on WAN Interface
It seems as though I can either setup a static IPv6 IP on my WAN interface, by picking an address in the same /64 as my IPv6 Addressing Subnet on my Arris NVG589 (Under Home Network)
I can setup a 6rd tunnel and then get IPv6 prefixes to use on the inside of my network. My WAN interface currently shows 2602:30x:beef: for it's IP address under Status -> Interfaces. I used this post as reference. https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=93625.0
I'd like to do both. I want to terminate IPsec VPN tunnels on my pfSense FW, which as far as I can tell requires me to have an IPv6 Address on my WAN interface.
Initially I put an IPv6 address in as a VIP for my WAN interface. That worked fine even with my WAN interface set to IPv6 -> NONE (I had an IPv6 default GW set in Gateways) and I was able to ping6 ipv6.google.com from the command line on pfSense. Once I setup the 6rd configs to get prefixes for my LAN networks, I could no longer ping out via IPv6 to anything outside my local /64.
Before I had an actual address (not ending in :: ) on the interface.
Any ideas how I can get an IPv6 address on my WAN interface AND get prefixes for my LANs?
Any ideas, anyone??
I could hack my way into having a second WAN interface just for IPv6 I suppose. But that would require me to bridge 2 vlans.

Have the Uverse guys actually fixed their IPv6 mess yet??
(just one example)
I don't think so.
6rd is still their "solution" for any users that aren't on enterprise fiber. I asked an enterprise sales guy (for one of my clients) to chase down the issue a little but I don't think he gets it.
