[IPv6] [SOLVED]Any m0n0wall users have this working?

Running m0n0wall 1.8.0b512 on GB-1000 hardware.

I have the WAN configured to obtain IPv6 via DHCP, and specified DHCP-PD on the LAN with IPv6 Prefix Delegation set to 0/64.

But I can't get an IPv6 address on WAN or LAN (other than link local).

I know IPv6 is enabled in my area because it works with pfsense 2.1 snapshots on the same hardware.

I have posted in the m0n0wall forum but have not heard back yet. Most of the supporters there are in Europe and don't have access to a Comcast line.

TIA for any insight you might have.

Solved:

m0n0wall Traffic Shaper must be disabled and all shaper rules must be cleared from the configuration. Bug reported on m0n0wall forum.

Re: [IPv6] Any m0n0wall users have this working?

Are you running this in a home environment? I have no experience with m0n0wall but since it seems you are just switching, I thought I would throw out trying Astaro Security Gateway. I am using it currently with a SiXXs tunnel with no issues and it appears, from what I have read, to have no issues with native IPv6.

They provide a free license for home users with some connection restrictions, but other than that, it is a fully fledged business class firewall.

This link lists the essentials and home editions.

Also looks like they have a business essentials version also for free.

I run m0n0wall in a home environment and have been doing so for years. I am not interested in switching away from it. If I must switch, it would be to pfsense, but only for its currently working IPv6 support. Once the problem is solved in m0n0wall, I would return to it.

Things like Astaro are not compatible with the small systems used to run embedded solutions such as m0n0wall and pfsense.

Understood.. Was just throwing it out there as a possible option as it seemed, by your OP, that you had just switched.

I think you misunderstood my not quite clear post.

The reference to pfsense was that it works in this environment, not that I had been previously using it and switched to m0n0wall.
