No IPv6 DHCP6 Request on WAN



  • Hi all
    I've configured my WAN on ix0 with DHCP6. My provider is saying, that he didn't receive any dhcp6 request.
    PFSense. IPv6 is activated on networking.
    How could I check if dhcp6 is sending an request?

    thx
    admins

    Do a packet capture on ICMP6 on the WAN interface. However, it might be difficult to use the pfSense Packet Capture at that time, so you'd need a managed switch, with port mirroring, between the firewall and modem. You'd then use a computer running Wireshark to capture the packets. I assume your modem is in bridge mode, not gateway.
