Hetzner & pfSense



  • Is anyone else using a pfSense in a virtualized enviroment with Hetzner root servers? I'm having trouble with getting them understand my need for just a few addresses for a WAN link and not an entire /56 as I don't feel the need to spend 50 or so euros for that.

    The provider only gives me one /64 (by default), but to my knowledge you're not supposed to split it when you want to use SLAAC?
    How would I go about using the same prefix on the WAN and LAN interface, if I use DHCPv6 then?



  • try to get the /56 anyways ... sometimes isp's say they only supply the /64 but in reality they'll route /56 prefix for each customer if you setup the dhcp-client to get a /56, it might just work

    or get another isp or spend the €50

    I won't get any IPv6 prefix from DHCPv6 as it's static only configuration, so your idea does not apply.

    EDIT: They are routing my prefix though a link local address which my WAN interface is lacking. :(
