Hey guys, I got a quick question I just setup a pfsense box running pfsense 2.3.3
I goto test-ipv6.com and ipv6-test.com and both fail saying only ipv4. but sometimes they both pass and say I have ipv6.
@gp-se have a read thru the following thread:
You could also navigate to the PfSsense IPV6 section of the forum and use the search term "Rogers", minus the quote marks of course to see what else comes up in that section of the forum that is related to Rogers.
I seem to recall that @JKnott posted a comment recently that provided an additional instruction for IPV6 operation.
ipv6-test.com should give you at least 19/20.
test-ipv6.com should give you 10/10.
The DNS forwarder should have nothing to do with your problem. DNS is used to determine the IP address for a host name. It has nothing to do with whether IPv6 is available or not.
BTW, in the pfSense forum, they recommend DNS resolver be used instead of forwarder. You need one or the other to provide IP addresses for devices on your local network.
Thanks I got it working by going to:
System -> General Setup: disabled the DNS Forwarder, and now it's working!
@gp-se That's interesting, as that option only disables DNS resolution for the firewall box itself. Here's mine (and I get 19/20 on ipv6-test.com);
Now, on yours, instead of the firewall asking itself (127.0.0.1) to resolve a DNS name (using DNS Resolver / unbound), it's going directly out to DNS servers on the Internet (not a bad thing in the beginning, but will limit your use of hostnames & Aliases for firewall rules on your local network). Do you have Services / DNS Resolver enabled? (it should be by default on install of 2.3.3, unless you've disabled it) Also check that Services / DNS Forwarder is disabled (it should be by default on install of 2.3.3). There could be an issue with your DNS Resolver config (which we can solve in a separate thread from the IPv6 thread if you want to create a new thread).
Is that TPLink a WAP or a Router with WiFi?
I'm not familiar with TPLink, but in WAP mode, it should not be doing anything with IPv6. What you don't want is 2 devices on your network doing Router Advertisements (TPLink & pfSense).
Disable IPv6 Connectivity to an Xbox (CODA -4582)
Unfortunately P2P gaming across different platforms/companies/servers etc hasn't caught on yet with IPv6 and often results in not being able to connect with other users. I had an older Hitron router but I was told to upgrade to the Coda 4582 as it will allow me to disable IPv6 towards specfic devices. I have yet to have any luck and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.
