Only Have IPV6 on Wan and IPV4 on Lan?

  • Hello all,

    I'm scratching my head a bit here as I volunteered to test IPV6 with my home ISP and I now cannot reach my internal email server, webmail, ftp etc from the outside world.

    This is my own home setup.

    So, before I just used IPV4 on wan (192.168.0.x) and lan (192.168.100.x) and everything worked fine. As I am on a residental ISP I had to place my pfsense wan IP in the modems DMZ (will not go into details why but I had to).

    Now that I have been setup with IPV6 the ISP has removed the IPV4 DMZ and they have informed me that for IPV6 DMZ and the like are no longer required (got to admit am on a new learning curve here I was not expecting).

    Anyhow, at present I can browse the internet but that is about it. (as I no longer have the DMZ) I manage my own DHCP and DNS on an internal server.

    I think upgrading my internal setup to IPV6 is going to be a major task (well at least for me ;) so here comes the dumb question. Can I configure my pfsense wan to IPV6 and have some sort of encapsulation to convert to IPV4 to the lan and vice versa? Would that also mean I have to have pfsense manage IPV6 DNS? Would I also have to register say my FTP in the pfsense IPV6 DNS?

    Sadly the ISP is not very forth coming on proactive info as they only support your regular home type user.

    So far using DHCPv6 I get a green light on the gateway but then no internet access at all etc.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated. Am so used to IPV4 and now reading on IPV6 is making me feel old.

    Thanks and cheers
