This is ridiculous

Knowing IPV6 is available, it won't configure correctly through the SMC modem, requires switching to the Netgear to take advantage. In doing this, now my business phone lines are DOWN.

 

I use the phone services I have chosen for specific reason and options that comcast doesn't provide, nor is the comcast phone service anything I want in the first place. I need a working solution that will open the the VOIP for me as well as allow me to correctly configure IPV6 for my network.

 

The Cisco modem is absolutely not an option as it breaks the VPN connections I use to remotely manage my clientelle.

 

As I have a static block of IPV4 addresses, I am forced to use only comcast provided modems.

Hello SeamusO and welcome,

 

You need to make sure that all ports related to VOIP on your Routable Static IP device must be open such as your SIP Ports 5060, 5061 ; H.323 Ports 1718,1719,1720, 2517 ; H.501 Port 2099 ; H.248 Port 2944, and any others related tother protocols you might be using, etc. Have you confirmed this?

Re: This is ridiculous

I had to put my vonage device behind another royuter so the voip packets were encapsulated. Not happy that I had to do that, but it opened up an extra port on my modem that allowed me to finally get around to configuring my IPV6 setup.

 

Running a pfsense box (2.2.4) with 2 dual port nics, one nic handls V4 and V6 lan, one handles V4 and V6 wan. After fighting the V6 setup for quite some time, it turned out that setting the prefix to 60 immediately made V6 active through my pfsense box.

 

Would still like a static v6 assignment so I can uncomment all of my IPV6 webserver and DNS server configs, but apparently that's not in the works yet .. poke poke prod prod.

It is in the works. Q3-Q4 2015 is what I've heard.
