Native IPV6



  • Since i kinda feel i hijack the other thread i posted in, i started a new one "just for my problem".

    My windows ipconfig has the following info (some are masked with xxx):

    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

    If the attachment thing works, you can see the test from ipv6 test page.

    In other words, ipv6 works as it should when my windows computer is directly connected to the fiber modem.

    If i connect my pfsense box to the fiber modem as i should, and enable DHCP6 on my WAN interface, this is what it sais under "interfaces":

    Status 	up
    DHCP 	up  
    MAC address 	00:11:33:55:12:12
    IPv4 address 	85.166.xx.xx  
    Subnet mask IPv4 	255.255.252.0
    IPv6 Link Local 	fe80::202:1eff:fef2:8981%xl0  
    IPv6 address 	2001:4610:x:x::xxx  
    Subnet mask IPv6 	128
    ISP DNS servers 	127.0.0.1
    2001:4600:4:fff::53
    2001:4600:4:1fff::53
    8.8.8.8
    2620:0:ccc::2
    

    Basically it seems as it gets a WAN address right?

    If i try to ping :

     ping6 ipv6.google.com
    PING6(56=40+8+8 bytes) 2001:4610:x:x::xxx --> 2a00:1450:400f:801::1001
    ^C
    --- ipv6.l.google.com ping6 statistics ---
    5 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100.0% packet loss
    
    

    I created a firewall rule to allow ipv6 "all-all" on WAN, and LAN just to be sure.

    Where do i go from here?

  • Right.. seemingly working when i did the following:

    Put a notch on "Only request a IPv6 prefix, do not request a IPv6 address " on my WAN dhcp6 setting.

    Also followed the other advice around and put LAN on "Track interface", added a WAN firewall rule to allow inbound source UDP 547, destination UDP 546

    Internal clients get ipv6 address, and get 10/10 on the test-ipv6.com page.

    Well.. guess every ISP is different perhaps?
