Oct 14th snapshot IPv6 is gone



  • I upgraded from the October 11th snapshot to the snapshot of the 14th of the nano-bsd version. I have native dual stack connectivity with my ISP. When I upgraded, all ipv6 connectivity was gone. I noticed from redmine that a change was made to use the ISC client for ipv6. I suppose this is related. I didn't see anything in the logs that would indicate what happened. There isn't anything too fancy with my setup. Just some firewall rules and a couple of OpenVPN servers. I'll post again if a future snapshot brings ipv6 back.



  • Turns out the new dhcp6 client binary was not included in the copy list.

    Need to check if it's included now.



  • Upgraded to Oct. 19 snapshot. The pfsense router itself seems to get a WAN and LAN ipv6 address but doesn't seem to give them out to clients. I didn't see any RA packets when I did a quick packet capture. So no ipv6 connectivity for clients.

    Also, during bootup, something gets killed. The RRD graphs are never mentioned during bootup. I suspect the configuring of the firewall is having issues. When I used the Oct. 18th snapshot, the pfsense gui warned me about a syntax error for the Default allow LAN IPv6 to any rule.



  • Kind of the same issue , i get dual stack from the isp via pppoe +dhcp6 , i get ipv6 on the wan but nothing on the lan , or clients behind pfsense , i've tryied all the configuratons on the interfaces from the gui , also the radvd.conf seems to be blank:

    [2.1-BETA0][admin@pfsense.localdomain]/usr/local/sbin(64): cat /var/etc/radvd.conf
