If I just attach my linux box and do dhcpv6, everything works.
I'm now trying to drop in a pfsense box as a router/firewall & have requested a prefix delegation of /56 from comcast. How do I tell if my area is enabled for this? It doesn't seem to be working.
My linux box, of couse, gets a /64.
Edit: My pfsense box gets a /64 as well but anything smaller doesn't seem to work.
This is on our Netgear trial gear correct? If so that is correct the Netgear is getting the /56 and is delegating a /64 to your pfsense box.
From reading these forums, I have to get someone at comcast to put my netgear comcast router into "bridge" mode so that I can get the /56 on my router/firewall instead of on the netgear itself. I've also switched from a pfsenes box to an asa 5505 (Cisco) on 9.2 code.
If this not possible & I need to wait, let me know. I have no problem with ipv6 connectivity if I hook any device directly to the netgear box itself, but am hoping to get an intermediate router/firewall working that can have 3-4 interfaces, each with a /64 and begin testing.
Did you get a chance to try this out?
I'm still struggling with getting PD's to work at all on the trial CCR. I went as far as to install an Ubuntu VM, wide-dhcp client, and various dhcp client and radvd configs.
With the lack of information on the Netgear CD300DCR trial for IPv6, all I can do is surmize:
Latest firmware version ont he device still has the same affect.
I think at this point it's probably best for me to procure a supported modem (Arris) that is DOCSIS 3 and IPv6 capable for my production BCI. I can live with /60's and dynamic IPv6 at this point. I reckon the regular CCR's/CCM's on production HCI will have full support soon.
Now to find out about that bridigng mode. 😉
