6rd tunnel setup on Rogers

  • I'm trying to get a 6rd tunnel working with my home ISP (Rogers). They provide the settings on this page:

    Provider Prefix 2607:F090
    Provider Prefix Sites 32
    Mask Bits 0
    Relay Address

    So, on the WAN interface I set the 6rd prefix to 2607:F090::/32, border relay to and leave 0 for the prefix length. For the LAN interface I set it to track WAN.
    I get a IPV6 assigned to the WAN and LAN interfaces as well as the devices on the lan, so the route advertisement is working. In the LAN firewall rules I allow all IPV6 from any to any.

    However pfsense reports the ipv6 gateway as down and none of the ipv6 tests are successful

    apinger: ALARM: WAN_6RD(2607:f090:42b9:5fc0::) *** down ***

    Any suggestion?

  • Something I just noticed. The ipv6 on the WAN interface is /32 while the one on the LAN is /64. Is that supposed to be like that?

    WAN v6/6RD: 2607:f090:xxxx:xxxx::/32
    LAN v6/t6: 2607:f090:xxxx:xxxx::1/64

  • Hi MaxPF,

    I don't have any solutions for you, but myself & another user seem to be seeing the same thing as you are using Charter's 6RD service.

    You might want to keep an eye on this thread:



  • Use another monitor address, some use <prefix>::1 others also reply on <prefix>:: (0 basically).

    There is no common ground between those brokers</prefix></prefix>

  • Hi databeestje,

    I would suspect that the cause of the monitor being down is because the 6RD connection isn't up. I'm not sure any monitor address is going to work until MaxPF has a connection that passes some tests on the ipv6 test sites.

    I'm in a similar situation as described in the thread in my prior post.


  • Can you run a ping -S $WAN_STF_ADDRESS $monitoring address and see if that works?
