[DSL] IPv6?

Do you all have IPv6 support? If so, how do I get my addresses?

My router supports it and my server does (Mac).

Hello edalzell2,

Thank you for your inquiry.

We do offer IPv6 for our DSL customers in ON/QC and AB/BC.

There is no fee for IPv6.

Please send us a message in the »TekSavvy Direct Forum to submit your request.

Thank you
TSI Shawn S

Isn't it already active for all of AB/BC (DSL)? He's listed as Vancouver, so he wouldn't need to submit a request in the direct forum.

It's not offered by default, its offered as an option. So he has to request by direct forum or calling in.

Or eMail or online support form.

I do most of my service changes by eMail since the last time I tried MyWorld, it was still too confusing for my taste - need to find what I need out of 100 fields that have nothing to do with what I want and no idea which fields I need to file to get what I want out of the multiple 10-30 selection drop-down lists to do stuff at different levels of the all-in-one page.

MyWorld (at least as of the last time I saw it, which would be 2-3 years ago so I hope it has been cleaned up since) was the worst and most confusing online "order" (and who knows what else) form I have ever seen.

In another thread Gabe said of the West: "You will be assigned a /64 automatically if you enable IPv6 over your PPPoE session via ipv6cp" I took that to mean that enabling the option was not necessary for us as it was offered to all users by default. I've got it and didn't think anything was changed for my account. But perhaps I misunderstood.

You are correct Mactalla! It is automatically assigned as long as you have an IPv6 compatible PPPoE device.

Anyone managed to get this working in BC?

TekSavvy haven't enabled DHCP-PD (yet?). For now at least the router must relay the IPv6 negotiations between the LAN and WAN. I don't know if consumer routers have that option by default. It doesn't seem to be a typical configuration.

If your router can relay, then turn that on. Failing that, if your router can take OpenWrt you can use that. Failing that, ask Gabe if/when we'll get DHCP-PD. Sending some timmies could help

I have just realized all this time I have been talking about my router but not mentioned the modem. I have the Xysel modem in bridge mode. Do I have to do anything to it?

You need ipv6cp. dhcp-pd doesn't work for us yet

Ah, ok, so I am out of luck with my ASUS then?

No biggie, was just playing around.

If your modem is in bridge mode then it will have no effect on IPv6 (or anything at the IP level).

Based on your screenshot, unless you've got something special under Connection Type, the best you can get with that router is IPv6 access for itself (nothing for the LAN computers) or create a private network for your LAN (disable DHCP-PD and you can probably hardcode a private subnet under the LAN settings). You'll still be NAT'ed so not ideal, but it sounds like Gabe's working on DHCP-PD which will solve the problem.

Native, Tunnel, Static are my options.

So no relay for you, sorry.

Choices:

a. IPv6 only on your router (not too useful)

b. NAT'ed IPv6 for your LAN (not great, but at least it's something)

c. And send Gabe some Timmies and wait. Repeat until DHCP-PD starts working. Sounds like they might be blocked by their hardware supplier, so this could be a long wait.

Tunnel is a good choice too, or is that what you are refering to as NAT'd

True, tunnel is also an option. In fact that would give him non-NAT'd public IPs. Just not using TekSavvy's native IPv6.

By NAT'd I was referring to assigning a private IPv6 address range to his LAN. These would not be globally visible and would have to be translated just like the 192.168.x.x addresses in IPv4.

There is an advantage of using a tunnel over native,

If you change ISP's, you can keep the same static IP addresses
