IPv6 and pfSense 2.1.5 64 bit



  • Hi

    I would like to know what are the IPv6 addresses to be used in a LAN?

    I have a hardware firewall managed by pfSense 2.1.5 64 bit and I would also enable the IPv6 protocol to ensure that IPv6 packets, coming from the programs on the LAN, are "converted" in the IPv4 protocol. How do I do this?

    Thanks

    Bye

    You know…, IPv6 is a parallel system to IPv4. So ask your ISP to supply you IP in dual stack. pfSense can handle that for you.

    And once that failed: :P

    Sure. But the future is native IPv6 so ask for it or IPv4.

    The "future" as seen here:

    Ask for IPv6, lose your IPv4 public IP, get behind CGN with a single dynamic /64. Thanks but no thanks. (Sincere greetings to O2 idiots).



  • When I enable the "Allow IPv6" and "Enable IPv4 NAT encapsulation of IPv6 packets" options, which valid IPv6 address I should give to the firewall and which rule I should additional to the firewall to allow also the passage of IPv6 packets?

    Thanks

    Uh. Start with your ISP, checking how they supply IPv6 (if at all).

    Note: My firewall hardware is connected to an ADSL router as my ADSL uses the PPPoA protocol.

    Thanks

    … Enable IPv4 NAT encapsulation of IPv6 packets ...

    WHY do you need IPv6 ?

    IPv6 is meant as a public addressing system that you manage with inbound/outbound allowances.

    Dude, the answer is still the same. Get to your ISP and bring us some info!!!

    IPv6 is meant as a public addressing system that you manage with inbound/outbound allowances.

    Because I have some programs that also use the IPv6 protocol.

    Thanks

    Can you mention an example, a typical program that wants to go public while there is no public IPv6, but that will refuse to take the IPv4 instead ?

    What brand-type of MoDem-Router/Switch do you have ?
    Is your Internet Service Provider able to offer you IPv6 ?
