IPV6 question



  • Im about to take my 1st jump into open source linux firewalls as a project mostly because i have to many old computers laying around. I also have a really outdated linksys router.

    My question is.

    1. Does PFsense support IPV6 on the WAN side

    2. Does PFsense hand out IPV6 DHCP addresses

    I'm looking to create a router box that will be able to last for a while and since I'm getting a IPV6 address on my Time Warner Router it would be nice to have access to this.

    • Thanks

    1 yes
    2 yes if you set it up to.

    pfsense has full support for ipv6 in multiple setups.



  • Thanks this is what i wanted to know, going to try to set up tonight.

    should be as simple as setting dhcp on your wan for ipv6, and then track on your lan… But without a static on your lan side for ipv6 it becomes harder to serve up dhcpv6.

    Can you requests a specific /56 or /48 from your isp, then you can setup whatever /64's you want on your internal networks.



  • BTW, there is a dedicated IPv6 forum.
