I operate a small WISP. I'm looking at setting up IPV6. I have a block of IPV6 ::/40 from ARIN with BGP routing already configured and working.
My core router is an EdgeRouter from Ubiquiti, but it appears to not fully support DHCP-PD, so I'm looking at using my Mikrotik switch (CRS312) instead. The trick is that the switch needs to route it through the EdgeRouter, and I'm having a bit of a hard time with the configuration. My EdgeRouter is BGP-peered with my upstream provider to advertise my IPv6 /40.
Here's what I've attempted so far on the Mikrotik:
I haven't setup a DHCP client anywhere yet. I wanted to first attempt to get a ping from the switch to the EdgeRouter working before I moved on beyond that point. I freely admit that I'm completely new at IPv6, so I could be going at this from the wrong angle. Open to suggestions/ideas.
Code: Select all
- Create pool of addresses. Prefix is `xxxx:xxxx::/40` (what ARIN assigned), with a prefix length of 48 - Create a DHCP server on the bridge interface using the pool - Since I want to route it through the EdgeRouter, I assigned the EdgeRouter a static address of xxxx:xxxx:1000:: - I added a static route of ::/0 using a Gateway of "combo2-router" (the physical port where my EdgeRouter is plugged in) (the switch says this is unreachable)
Here's my network diagram:
