I am trying to get ICMP (ping) working on Voyager using my BYO Skinny HG659 router.

 

I want to get ping working to set up Hurricane Electric IPv6 tunnelling through IPv4.

 

I have set up the router security ACL to include ICMP-LAN and ICMP-WAN (without using any IP addresses).
I have rebooted my router.

 

I have used my mobile phone to try and ping my IP.
I have also used MX-Toolbox web site to also try and ping my IP.

 

Using my phone and Mx-Toolbox I can ping to some external IPs nearby my IP.

 

I can use Window 10 CMD to ping my external IP and also various external IPs no problem.

 

I have a few snips on my router config but I thought I would try a shorter posting first.

 

Any help would be most appreciated.

I dug out my old Spark HG630b and set it up for Voyager VDSL.

 

Set ACL to:

 

ICMP LAN to any any (no IP addresses).

 

and

 

ICMP WAN to any any (no IP addesses)

 

Didn't even re-boot the router and now I can ping my WAN IP.

 

Pleased.

 

Now to figure out what I need to do to enable ICMP in my HG659.

 

Maybe Skinny disabled ICMP in the HG659 router - firmware V100R001C297B011.

 

Onwards....

I have gone back to using my Skinny HG659 with Voyager... without ping working as yet. ACL - ICMP for Lan and Wan is setup.

 

I stopped using the HG630 which did have successful ping because I couldn't find any  IP protocol 41 option for IPv6 encapsulation.

 

I will continue to look for options. Maybe a more suitable modem/router is required.

You can ask Voyager for IPv6?

 

 

Have asked Voyager.... response was 'months away'...

 

I did find in a web search that Voyager has a bunch of IPv6 /32 recorded back in December 2017.

That is what I thought. I wouldn't suggest setting up a he.net tunnel (it is quite high latency).

 

If you need IPv6 for anything then maybe setting up a vultr.com VM would be better for you.

Thanks for the link...

 

I don't really need IPv6.... I want to learn about IPv6 and perhaps work through the HE IPv6 certification.

 

HE appears to require you to have IPv6 to be able to work through the certification.

You don't need IPv6 locally on your network - a VM with IPv6 will work well (Vultr $5 plan). You can create a SSH tunnel if you want it locally that way. Much easier than setting up a tunnel on your home network as tunnels are incredibly slow.

 

Trust me, I know :)

Hi Gordy7, 

 

We can provide an IPv6 service if you like - comprised of a /64 linknet, and a /56 routed subnet (common industry standard).
It's not something we currently offer publicly (Geekzone forums aside I guess :P ), but can be arranged on a case-by-case basis.

 

We have a full dual-stack core, so its the real deal.....SLAAC/RA, DHCPv6 and of course Static supported, so it'll just come down to if your router supports it.

 

Contact me via Private message, and I'll explain the details etc :)

That's quite a range.

 

 

 

Any reason to build out the network on all the options rather than go with defacto default, DHCPv6 or nothing?

Not exactly sure what the IPv6 offering is... seems huge...

 

I will quite  comfortably map my stuff into the lower 256 addresses of my IPv6 address range.

2degrees are the same. It is basically the standard to support all the things for the ultimate in router support. If the core routers support it then why the hell not is the simple answer to your question ;)

Got myself set up with vultr.com. Was really easy and with good docs. Used Ubuntu with GUI and have started looking at LAMP tools to set up a web server.

 

I have not come across virtual computers before. I did look at other offerings, but vultr seemed the best value. By selecting a few Twitter links I got plenty of credit to get me going. Thanks :-)

Pretty much - why wouldn't we?

 

It's only a couple of additional lines of config to support each protocol ... it makes no difference to our core, but a world of difference to our customers in that we can support all the options.
