Re: IPv6 beta

Can Teksavvy please start attaching the IPv6 subnets to our existing IPv4 static accounts?

If you're interested in this send PMs to TSI Marc every 2 weeks reminding him how many people are interested in this. He keeps asking me to do so but if more people make him aware of the fact that we've been asking for this for over a year now it might help to get some real progress and I'm serious about this. He doesn't seem to read the v6 related threads (if he has time to even read DSLR much at all) and when I first brought it up he didn't seem to be aware of people wanting further progress in this area.

In the meantime, it's possible to run a static ipv4 and an ipv6 login simultaneously. It may not be possible, however, on some standalone router/wireless devices. There are instructions in this thread for doing it in debian flavoured linux, and I think someone did something similar with one of the BSD variants.

Well TSI isn't a major ISP.

Anyway, they were doing good with the initial beta testing and then dropped the ball from there.

Just followed Kujo_'s steps and I can now access IPv6 sites.

However, I only score 9/10 on the test at »test-ipv6.com/.

It says "No IPv6 address detected"

Anyone know how to fix this?

Hi Kujo,

Success. This time there was "UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTITASK" text in the br0 area that wasn't there before. I went ahead and just added the 1/64 and the route (and the WANUP script). test-ipv6.com results in 10/10 for IPv6 connectivity on my Windows 7 machine. Now I'll research and figure out why my Win XP over wireless isn't picking anything up IPv6 related.

Thank you very much

Dalkeith,

I'm surprised that didn't work. I was having problems getting IPv6 running as well, and those steps finally worked for me.

I know anytime the router is rebooted, you have to redo the steps.

Adding your Ipv6 info below into the WAN Up script section under Administration/Scripts in the router config might help avoid having to do it manually (though you may still have do it).

ip -6 addr del 2607:f2c0:blah:1a8::1/0 dev br0
ip -6 addr add 2607:f2c0:blah:1a8::1/64 dev br0
ip -6 route del 2000::/3 dev ppp0
ip -6 route add 2000::/3 dev ppp

I'm not sure what else to tell you. Are you using the second version of the Ipv6 tomato firmware found at the bottom of the first page of this thread (date of bin the file is 26/02/10)?

Use the following sites to test Ipv6.
»test-ipv6.com/
»ipv6-test.com/

Hi Kujo,

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately no go. I tried with both my /56 /64 addresses and adding both respectively in the Tomato field. Once done, I tried doing a tracert from the router to ipv6.google.com but only get "*" (not sure if this is good or not). Can ping directly to ipv6.google.com from the router which has always worked (also not certain this reveals anything). On my Win 7 machine I seem to get an ipv6 , but going to ipv6 test sites via google results in a timeout, or no ipv6 assigned. I also tried rebooting the router but by doing this the settings via ifconfig in br0 revert back from 1/64 to 1/10.

I've read through the posts, but I'm unable to pull a IPv6 IP. I have attempted using the script on page 9, tried using static DNS, blanking out router IP address (but doesn't let me), so no go. I am using a WRT54GL router with the modded tomato-mlppp-1.27-mp3alpha7 firmware. When I enter the /64 address and choose /64 as the netmask it reverts to 54 after saving. I am logging in with my hsiservice.net credentials. Someone able to point me in the right direction?

Download Putty. »www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgta···oad.html

Use it to login via SSH to your router via it's IP address (Make sure SSH access is enabled in the router). Login as "root".

Type "ifconfig".

Next to br0, you should notice "2607:f2c0:XXX:1ba::1/0".
Type "ip -6 addr del 2607:f2c0:XXX:1ba::1/0 dev br0" to remove it.

Then do the following, line by line.
"ip -6 addr add 2607:f2c0:XXX:1ba::1/64 dev br0"
"ip -6 route add 2000::/3 dev ppp0".

Run ifconfig again.

"2607:f2c0:XXX:1ba::1/64" should now be listed in the br0 section.

Retest ipv6 connectivity.

They will on June 8th . With any luck, the results from that will be positive enough that major sites will just leave IPv6 enabled rather than resorting to whitelists.

I don't think TekSavvy supports delegating IPv6 PTR queries yet.

Actually I was thinking about that this morning and I switched the router DNS settings from OpenDNS to TekSavvy's own DNS servers and my score changed from 9/10 to 10/10. It appears that the OpenDNS servers don't respond to IPv6 calls. So there you have it, you can't use the OpenDNS service with IPv6 or at least not yet.

EDIT: After a retest I was still scoring 9/10 so I set my IPv4 DNS servers on the router to 206.248.154.170 & 74.82.42.42. Now its 10/10 again. We'll see how it goes.

A quick walk through for anyone with a D-Link DIR-655 rev. B1. First off, upgrade your firmware to version 2.01.

Then use these settings under Advanced/IPV6

My IPv6 Connection is: PPPoE
PPPoE Session: Share with IPv4
Address Mode: Static Mode
IP Address: 2607:f2c0:blah:4200::1 (your assigned /56 address)
Use the following DNS address: checked
Primary DNS Address: 2607:f2c0::1
Secondary DNS Address: 2607:f2c0::2
Enable DHCP-PD: unchecked
LAN IPv6 Address: 2607:f2c0:blah:1::1 (your assigned /64 address)
Enable automatic IPv6 address assignment: checked
Autoconfiguration Type: Stateless
IPv6 Address Lifetime: 1440

Takes a few minutes to come up but once it does you can test your connection at »test-ipv6.com/

Using the above settings I scored 10/10 and 9/10. Good luck.

Also the number of systems is irrelevant for this and there are more than enough people testing with just as many and a whole lot more.

Just so those that are using Pfsense 2.0 beta etc know this IPV6 setup now works with GUI etc even. Still working on a couple details and to start fresh to make sure I can repeat these steps.

Edit: Fresh Install and working great. Nice having a GUI to setup the port forwards etc.

Not yet, but you can work around that with an extra PPPoE tunnel that uses your static-IP account.


    •First, add a line to pppd's pap-secrets with your @hsiservice.net account info.
    •Modify your IPv6 ppp peer file to prevent it from acquiring an IPv4 address. You can do this by remove "defaultroute".
    •Connect both ppp sessions! I don't think the order matters, but I start with the IPv4 one.


On Tomato, things are a bit more fragile because of its rigid environment. Modifying files will not do! You will have to configure scripts to run when the WAN connects. Scripts can be modified from the "Administration" sub-menu. Something like:

echo \"USERNAME@hsiservice.net\" \* \"PASSWORD\" \* >> /etc/ppp/pap-secrets

cat > /etc/ppp/peers/spppoe EOF
user 'USERNAME@hsiservice.net'
hide-password
nobsdcomp
nodeflate
lock
noauth
plugin rp-pppoe.so
br1
mtu 1492
mru 1492
noip
usepeerdns
lcp-echo-interval 5
lcp-echo-failure 12
maxfail 1
nodetach
holdoff '30'
EOF

redial spppoe &

=====

You would configure the tomato UI to connect with your static IPv4 account, then have it run that script when it connects. The peer file (in my example "spppoe") must start with an 's', which is a Tomato/MLPPP-specific hack to allow multiple PPPoE tunnels on the same interface.
