IPV6 DNS server



  • Ok, so I'm running the latest 2.2-BETA (i386 - built on Fri Oct 03 10:16:51 CDT 2014) and I've got IPV6 configured with Comcast WAN (DHCP6) and two LAN (track interface) subnets. All is working well, except for one thing… there doesn't seem to be any way to tell the LAN client which IPV6 DNS servers to use. I can't use DHCP6 on the LAN interfaces in assisted mode since the LAN interfaces don't have static addresses, and router advertisements don't specify a IPV6 DNS server address.

    Am I missing something??? Or, is there no way to do this?

    Ideally I'd want the LAN side client to use dnsmask are the IPV6 DNS server.



  • Not sure if I'm doing it right, but I put google IPV6 DNS server addresses on the list in general setup.

    BTW - Its working fine.

    I don't actually like or recommend using Time Warner Cable or Comcast IPv6 native though with pfsense.

    Their systems suck a bit.  The usefulness of a dynamic /64 on the WAN is also a bit limited to the point of making me say "Why bother"

    I'm going to disable native IPV6 on the one I still have running and switch it over to hurricane electric /48

    I'd like to take advantage of DNS entry caching in dnsmask.

    I've given up on unbound for IPV6 since the IPV6 address of the LAN interfaces are not available at the time unbound initializes and it fails to listen on the V6 addresses.



  • Figured it out. Removed all DNS specifications, and selected the 'Allow DNS server list to be overridden by DHCP/PPP on WAN' checkbox in System/General.



  • Yes - That will get you comcast DNS
