We now have an IPv6 block routed to vancouver but the problem is that we need to upgrade the OS on one of the routers to properly support IPv6 over ppp. (requires downtime). No ETA for that yet.
Any ETA on an ETA?

we are still waiting on patches from Juniper. They should be released soon but doesn't necessarily mean that we will be able to upgrade right away.

I didn't realize your hardware needed something different out this way. Let us know when there's an update. Myself and I'm sure a few others are ready to beta test as soon as it comes

So I have my new IPv6 /64 address but I'm not sure what to put in the 'Router' box (also known as 'Gateway'). I've tried various combinations but nothing seems to work so far in terms of accessing IPv6-only websites.

Running Mac OS X Snow Leopard.

Any help would be appreciated!

Im having the same problem under OS X, the login connects but the IP displays nothing, and I cannot surf any websites at all.

I'm no expert yet so forgive the uninformed question.

Will your beta ipv6 test work with a dd-wrt router as long as it's one of the ipv6 enabled dd-wrt versions?

Or are you currently only working with your own custom tomato firmware for that one router?

The particular router does not matter. Just as long as it supports IPv6 and IPv6CP with its PPP implementation.

I'm running 2link on IPV6 using this Tomato firmware. Everything is running fine except the torrents. My connection is not throttled but my torrents are only downloading with 1 link. The reason I can tell it's using 1 link only is because when I download torrents I usually download at 1.3mb/s but with this firmware on IPV6 the max its downloading is at 550kb/s. Torrents I download are seeded fully. Is anyone facing this problem? or can someone check??

It was mentioned in another thread that there is an issue with IPv6 and MLPPP on Juniper gear not working together properly. My guess is the issue you're experiencing is probably relate to the issue mentioned. If that is the case it should be fixed by an upcoming OS update from Juniper.

Now that the IPv6 DNS is up and running I am using them instead of the HE DNS server. Is it possible to get the TS IPv6 DNS servers set-up with Google so the IPv6 addresses are returned to us instead of the IPv4 addresses for youtube, gmail, google search etc...?

I've just updated the firmware on my WRT54GL and I am unable to find the "Router IPv6 Address" field under "Basic -> Network".

Oops, I didn't use the version you attached to this thread, I used the one from the "official" website.

I agree it would be awesome for TekSavvy to sign up with Google so we can start getting YouTube, etc., over IPv6. If we could get that and reverse DNS as well, this IPv6 provision would be pretty much perfect as far as I'm concerned.

FYI if anyone's getting this going under OpenWRT (I'm running Kamikaze), the biggest time waster for me was forgetting to add "+ipv6" to /etc/ppp/options, which was preventing me from getting an IPv6 link on ppp0. Other than that, everything's been a peach.

Anyone having difficulty with IPv6?

My router doesn't seem to be pulling in an IPv6 address today.

Edit: Aaaannnnndddd... Murphy's Law, it starts working as soon as I post this.

Any further updates to this? I seem to recall reading that a software update on the Juniper gear last week was going to enable IPv6 and MLPPP, but I may be wrong.

Don't believe Juniper got that patch done yet.

Marc said MLPPP should be working with the IPv6 realm and I'm now able to establish an MLPPP session ever since the JunOS image was updated.

Yeah... spoke with Marc and some stuff might work but isn't tested or fully implemented.

will we be able to use our static IPv4 address with an IPv6 connection soon?

IPv6 was working fine on my side... but I had to go back to my "old" username/password to get my static ip address...

Alright, maybe I'll try to dedicate a little more time on the Tomato firmware this week now that Juniper released the patch and that we installed it.

does this mean that IPv6 is now available on all connections? If yes, can I use the IPv6 settings that you gave me with my "standard" mlppp login?

you guys change the ipv6 routing? seems to go to llnw.net and then die. cant reach anything on the he.net ipv6 side (like other tunnels, their irc server, etc)

4 hops max, 12 byte packets
2 2607:f2c0:1:2110::2 49.015 ms 49.164 ms 48.524 ms
3 2607:f4e8:2260::1 48.014 ms 48.853 ms 48.541 ms
4 tge5-3.fr3.yyz.ipv6.llnw.net 65.504 ms 59.229 ms 65.111 ms

then it dies

although ipv6.google.com still works.

I take it he.net is having problems or llnw.net -> he.net is having problems or something

edit: everything fixed now, but llnw is now gone from the ipv6 traceroutes

I just enabled ppp multilink again on my end, and still having problem reaching a bunch of v6 sites, including »ipv6.he.net/statistics/ and »www.noc.maine.edu/speedtest.net/. I'm not too sure if it's something on my end like an mtu issue, or not. Everything works fine without mlppp though.

What did the Juniper patch addressed, Gabe?

The juniper patch addressed issues with using ipv6 combined with mlppp but I haven't had the chance to test them myself yet.

Is it possible to have our static IPv6 attached to an IPv6 account. Without this, it makes it difficult for me to test.

Got IPv6 working on my old Cisco 837 router. Very simple configuration. I only need to add ipv6 addrs to the interfaces and enable nd. Then it just works.

Is there any chance you will extend the ipv6 beta to the cable modem side of things?

It was already mentioned a few times that that is not possible at the moment.
