Getting UGAs via Router in front of pfsense / IPv6 network delegation
I'm not getting it. It's usually quite simple but pfsense doesn't make sense to me. :D
I have a proper router cascade with 2 Fritz.boxes. the second box is getting an prefix from the first one and spread the UGAs as supposed to be.
But I have no idea whats going on with pfsense.
heres an overview:
Fritz.Box 01 prefix ::/56 -> Fritz.Box 02 prefix ::/62 -> UGAs on Clients at the LAN side
Fritz.Box 01 prefix ::/56 -> PFSense -> no UGAs on Clients at the LAN side
I put an IPv6 static adress on the LAN side Network but still no prefix available.
There are some Options but I ticked them and nothing happens. I'm not really sure.They shouldn't useful anyway because it's looking like Delegation.
Can anyone Help me with that?
It should be simple but I can't find a way to get it running. :(
If you want pfSense to pick up and use a delegated prefix then:
- WAN must be set to DHCPv6
- You must have the proper delegation size filled in on the WAN settings.
- LAN must be set to track6 with the WAN chosen
- LAN must have a delegation prefix set (typically 0)
And in addition to jimp; in FB you specify the prefix-size which you then use with pfSense.
For FB config "Require certain length for the LAN prefix": let's set : 64
Then pfSense WAN: "DHCPv6 Prefix Delegation size" : 64; "Send IPv6 prefix hint" : true
And reboot the pfSense, FB, or both in logical sequence.
Thanks for your help.
I did exactly what you described but hdas Addition was the missing Piece and got me on track.
It is now working as I thought it has to be and similiar to my second Fritz.box.
I'm playing around a bit and will come back if I have more questions.
Thanks again. :D
