I've been poking with different IPv6 settings in the Toastman firmware, but I can't seem to figure out how to configure things correctly (where "correctly" in this case means that all tests pass over at test-ipv6.com ). After a lot of failed attempts, I'm throwing in towel on the trial-and-error approach and would appreciate some help in getting things sorted.
First, the knowns:
As part of Charter's IPv6 Trials we have made available a Public 6rd Border Relay. If you are interested in participating in our early trials and own a device that supports 6RD use this configuration information to begin experiencing the Next Generation Internet: 6rd Prefix = 2602:100::/32 Border Relay Address = 18.104.22.168 6rd prefix length = 32 IPv4 mask length = 0 Primary DNS Address = 2607:f428:1::5353:1 Secondary DNS Address = 2607:f428:2::5353:1
And now the questions:
For a 6rd relay, within Toastman's IPv6 settings, is the correct selection in this case "6in4 Static Tunnel", "Native from ISP" or "Other (Manual configuration)"? (Or, perhaps one of the other options?)
Based on what I've been reading, my interpretation (which might well be wrong) is that the one I want is the 6in4 Static Tunnel. My current attempt at completing that form looks like:
Assigned/Routed Prefix: 2602:100:: Prefix Length: 32 Router IPv6 Address: 2602:100::1 Static DNS 1: 2607:f428:1::5353:1 Static DNS 2: 2607:f428:2::5353:1 Enable Router Advertisements: Checked Tunnel Remote Endpoint: 22.214.171.124 Tunnel Client IPv6 Address: 2602:100:: /32 Tunnel MTU: 0 Tunnel TTL: 255
…am I on the right track with the above?
…it would seem not, as test-ipv6.com reports that no IPv6 address was detected?
Other details that might be helpful in diagnosing the issue:
I have two machines that I've been testing from, one Windows 7 SP1 the other Windows Server 2008 R2.
I've disabled the built-in Microsoft tunnels on both of those machines via setting the registry entry:
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\TCPIP6\Parameters\DisabledComponents = 1
With those settings, the ISATAP and Teredo adapters are disabled as my understanding is they are not needed in this configuration.
I'm running the following firmware:
And, the last detail that might (potentially) be of use: I have a static IP from Charter.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions in sorting this out - and if additional details are needed to help troubleshoot just let me know.
