Setup ipv6 gateway

Wed Jan 30, 2008 5:15 am


To day i did get the ipv6 tunnel to work.
I have never setup a ipv6 gateway, have done it whit ipv4.
But ipv6 was tricky.
Assigned /64: 2001:470:1f09:bc::

What now?
Did add 2001:470:1f09:bc::1 to my router
Did add 2001:470:1f09:bc::1 gateway des: ::

and then i did add linux:
ifconfig eth0 inet6 add 2001:470:1f09:bc::4/64
ip -6 route add ::/3 via 2001:470:1f09:bc::1
But get noe route to the host.

What are im doing wrong?
Other thing i did not understand why do wee add
/ipv6 route add dst-address=2000::/3 gateway=::

on the tunnel to

IPv6 auto-configures with link local addresses so you shouldn't have to do anything on the client to get basic connectivity.

ifconfig eth0 should have a line similar to this:

inet6 addr: fe80::20c:29ff:fed5:bcc1/64 Scope:Link

and netstat -A inet6 -r should show a default route entry similar to this:

*/0 fe80::200:24ff:fec1:e128 UGDA 1024 9 0 eth0

In this case this is the link local address of the LAN interface on my router.

Once this is in place then ping6 should work and you should see the dancing turtle on their website.

2000::/3 is the current global unicast address space.
