Pref source ipv6

Sun Sep 25, 2022 7:02 am

My provider gives me a /64 block for p2p from my asn. Works. But I can't use btest because the prefsource is the bgp p2p and not my own block, in ipv4 if I can select prefsource, why not in ipv6?

What's a "perf" source?
If you run a btest from another device and not from the main router itself, as recommended, I think it'll all be fine.

I have corrected the word "pref source" in my post.

So my scenario is the following, I have a border router and I have an ASN. My provider gives me a /64 prefix not routed to the internet for p2p connection purposes to perform bgp, with bgp I can assign part of my /32 prefix to my edge router. But, if I want to start a speed test on my edge mikrotik, it will take from ip src the /64 that is not routed to the internet so performing the test is not possible. In ipv4 this is solved because in the Ip/route field you can select "pref. Source" to the default route, however in ipv6 this option does not exist.
