One router firmware upgrade later and I'm connected again. The old version had a bug that stopped IPv6 settings from being saved.

 

Very easy with Advanced Tomato

 

 

Working fine here too on Advanced Tomato 132. Very easy. Changed settings and rebooted. Didn't have to do a thing with the bridged Vigor 130.

 

 

Small correction - all works perfectly except DNS. Even after manually entering the Bigpipe DNS servers into the router settings, they're not being served up to any of my devices. Works fine once I manually set the DNS servers on the client. This is almost certainly at my end.

 

Detruire: does IPv6 DNS work correctly for you? What version of Tomato were you having trouble with, and what did you update to?

With ipv4 I never got around to getting a static address and setting up remote access/port forwarding etc but am now considering setting up remote access with my nice new sticky IPv6 addresses.

 

As someone who only has a consumer grade modem/router (Netcomm NF8AC) and Win 10 desktop and various other devices, what is the best way to do this? I assume configuring the desktop to accept incoming VPN connections on IPv6 and allowing the relevant port through on the firewall on the router is more secure than allowing access on the firewall to multiple devices directly.    

 

Win 10 seems to have the ability to configure incoming PPTP connections builtin. Is there other free/cheap VPN server software that people recommend.

 

Assuming I get it working, what happens if the place I'm trying to remote from only supports IPv4?

 

Sorry for all the questions, I'm trying to google the answers myself but don't yet have enough knowledge to to tell the right answers from the wrong ones.

@1xnRWP just make sure you add the firewall rules on that page since IPv6 is public (no NAT).

Had IPv6 enabled last night (Thanks team!) 

 

I thought dropping my WAN and WAN6 connection would be sufficient, but needed to reboot the modem.

 

 

 

Currently running IPv6 on all devices connected to my router running LEDE (OpenWRT) with the latest 4.4 linux kernel. 

 

 

 

Will do some more testing over the next few days, but as it's most basic, Web and other IPv6 capable traffic seem to be flowing!

I lost IPv6 connectivity at around 4:04am this morning while I was sleeping. I won't have much free time today - I'll try to look at the logs later tonight or tomorrow morning

Message sent. Hopefully I can get in on the action too.

 

Otherwise I may have a spare pfSense machine I could lend to michaelmurfy if needed, though I am in Hamilton and not Wellington :)

Perhaps you could loan it to Bigpipe. I'm testing on my production router, otherwise I would have shipped it to them to test with last week.

 

I've tried the production, current, and experimental releases of pfSense, with no apparent difference in behaviour. I've also tried the release of OPNsense with the same issue. Both distributions have been actively working on IPv6 issues over recent months/weeks, so hopefully the fix isn't too far away.

 

The issue I have is that I am not able to reliably get an IPv6 address assigned on the LAN interface. There are numerous threads about not getting addresses on the LAN, and a number of suggested causes, including the use of VLANs, a difference in expected command sequences between the DHCP client and server, the bogon network setting, the order settings are applied, and multiple instances of DHCP on the interface. None of the suggested solutions have worked for me.

What sort of formfactor are we talking?

 

 

 

I likely will be able to bridge the gap between hamilton and the office @IPv6pipe is in.

 

Obviously lugging around a full machine could be a tad, unpractical.

If this is a fullsize computer it may be a little expensive to ship :) but I heard @IPv6Pipe has a drawer of courier tickets. I am happy to take a look if it is something that is easy to ship.

It's Mini-ITX so not too large. I'd like to have a play myself if possible (I enjoy a challenge.) but failing that am happy to relinquish it for a while as I'm actually using a Fritz!Box as my modem/router at the moment given I'm in a temporary living arrangement and couldn't be bothered setting all the nerd stuff up.

Thanks for the offers of testing pfSense boxes. I may PM one of you about it in the near future, as I've been unable to find an unused dual NIC box. To those waiting for v6 activation: Check your PMs. :)

The router acts as a DNS proxy, and responds on its v6 address, but I'm not sure what it does in the background. I upgraded from a ~1 year old version to the latest one. The old one wouldn't save the IPv6 settings (JS error on the UI.)

Thanks for that. To make it a bit clearer - do you pass all three DNS tests at this site?

 

Might be time I upgraded to the latest version. 1.32 has been so stable I've been reluctant to.

I believed I got it working on my TP-LINK (no sure witch model). Here are the setting I used which worked for me:

 

WAN Setup:

 

Enable IPv6: tick

 

WAN Connection  Type: Tunnel 6to4

 

MTU Size: 1480

 

LAN Setup:

 

IPv6 Address Assign Type: DHCPv6 Server

That setup doesn't look correct. It appears from your screenshot that your router is configured for a tunnelling service, not the native v6 connectivity available from Bigpipe.

 

Your router needs to request a v6 prefix over DHCPv6-PD, and the request needs to come through over the same PPP session your v4 traffic is running over.
