Thanks @coolspot, I edited the instructions to include these comments.


Couple more bits:

 

1. pfSense by default blocks all IPv6 traffic whether or not you have a IPv6 IP. You need to create a LAN rule that has the following settings (copy the IPv4 version):

 

Action:  Pass

Interface: LAN

Address Family: IPV6

Protocol: Any

Source: LAN Net

Destination: Any

Port: Any

 

2. Update the "make system pingable" rule in the WAN tab and set it to IPV4+IPV6.

 

With these settings you should be able to score 19/20 on the IPv6 tests. The only missing feature is a reverse hostname lookup.

 

I hope this helps others.

 


I just checked my system and don't see any of those.

Forgot one last bit:

Under Services DHCPv6 Server & RA, under the Router Advertisement Tab, ensure that "Unmanaged" is selected.

If using managed and assisted then the DHCPv6 Server needs to be enabled and configured. The only real field to change is the "Range" in which case I used ::1 to ::1000

I believe that should be "Assisted", so that DHCPv6 provides things that RAs and SLAAC don't, such as DNS, NTP and other server addresses.

I tried DHCPv6 but the status remained "connecting". Score is 4/20 with no IPv6 connectivity. When I switch to Tunnel 6 to 4 I can establish connectivity. My score on the test page is 14/20. 


You've definitely got something wrong.  I always get  19/20.  Which side are you referring to for DHCPv6?  It should be on the WAN side only.  You don't need it on the LAN, as SLAAC provided the device address.

 


Yup. I am referring to the WAN side. With DHCPv6 and SLAAC enabled, it wont connect. However it does connect with Tunnel 6to4. 

And I am losing points due to the lack of browser fallback.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

How do you get SLAAC on the WAN side???  It should be DHCPv6.  SLAAC is on the LAN side, where you use RAs to provide the prefix, combind with MAC or random number to provide the host address.  You also use DHCPv6 on the LAN side to provide only server addresses.  Don't use it to provide host addresses.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

@goodboyr, can you:

 

1.  Have a look at the back of the modem, specifically the product sticker to determine what model it is:  CGN3, CGN3ACR, CGN3AMR, CGN3ACSMR, or CGNM-3552; and

 

2.  Log into the modem and determine what firmware version is loaded.  That is indicated by the Software Version (Firmware) which is located on the STATUS page.  That page is displayed automatically when you log into the modem.  

 

3.  Have a look at the WAN IP Address located in the upper right hand corner of the data on the STATUS page.  That should show two IP addresses, one IPV4 followed by a much longer IPV6 address.  

 

Please let us know the results of both.  Its possible that you might need to run a Factory Reset, or that there is an issue with the CMTS to which the modem is connected.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

1. CGNACSMR
2. 4.5.8.27
3. WAN IP Address is "none,none"

 

Note that my Hitron is in Bridge mode and I am using a TP-Link as my router.

Mine's a CGNA3CSMR and works fine with IPv6.

I am not sure why pfSense would be passing IPv6 traffic without the LAN rule ... because pfSense should block all packets without an access rule.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

Sorry, I missed "LAN" rule.  When I checked the LAN page I saw them.  However, I still don't see that "make system pingable" rule.

These settings work for TP-Link (Archer C7 in this case):
