Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

World IPv6 launchRogers has been for a very long time a strong supporter of the deployment of IPv6. We have worked with the international community and encouraged early adopters to try IPv6 by deploying a 6rd and a 6to4 relay back in 2011.

 

Given that we have now enabled native IPv6 access on all our recent DOCSIS gateways and mobile phones, this technology is now obsolete. Starting on May 18 2017, these services will be decommissioned.

 

I encourage anybody that is still using this Rogers 6rd or Rogers 6to4 service to migrate to native IPv6 service as soon as possible and wish to thank all the early adopters that helped to make IPv6 a reality.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

Are all new Rogers customers supposed to be on IPv6 now?  I've seen a couple that don't seem to, including a business that just got their Rogers connection within the past couple of weeks.  Both of these have the Hitron modems.  On the other hand, I have seen another business customer that did get IPv6.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

@JKnott Have they factory reset their gateways? Could also be something upstream from the modem bocking ipv6 (firewall)

The one I was looking at this week is a new install.  Wouldn't the modem be ready for IPv6 when installed?  It would be bad if a new customer was expected to reset the modem to get full function.  The otherone has been in service for a while, but I though there was going to be a way to update without resetting.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

The only thing that should be required is a modem restart.  Pull the power and plug it back in.  After the restart, check the modem's STATUS tab, specifically the WAN IP address block in the upper right hand corner.  It should contain both IPV4 and IPV6 addresses.  The exceptions are probably as follows:

 

1.  The CODA-4582 which has IPV6 disabled by the user if firmware version 2.0.10.27 is loaded; or

2.  The Cisco DPC-3825 which is not enabled for IPV6 operation; or

3.  The CGN3ACR/AMR/AMF which is running production firmware and running in Gateway mode.  In Bridge mode, they should be ok for IPV6 operation.  For those users who have the latest trial firmware installed on those modems, I believe IPV6 should be available in both Gateway and Bridge modes.  Users can always ask to have the latest trial firmware loaded on those modems.  That firmware is built for the CGN3ACSMR, but can be loaded on other modems.

 

For the CODA-4582 with V2.0.10.26T2 loaded, both IPV4 and IPV6 addresses should be present after the modem restart.  If not, then the CMTS is not assigning IPV6 addresses to the modem.  That should be reported to @RogersDave or possible Tech Support Level II staff to check out.  Going thru Tech Support, you would have to get past the Level I CSR, which may or may not be a problem depending on who you are talking to.  Basic question for the Level I CSR, can you fix the CMTS.  If not, then pass me to the Level II CSR.  Even then, probably the only thing the Level II CSR can do is report that problem to the network engineering staff.

IPv6 firewall on CGN3ACSMR gateway?

 

I have a public IPv6 address.

My router has a different, publicly routable /64 IPv6 address, so I'm taking it that Rogers have given me this /64 network. It's not correct IPv6 terminology, but I'll refer to this as my 'internal' network.

 

I've brought hosts up on this 'internal' network, and I can ping them all from public internet, which was quite exciting! But I've hit a roadblock with SSH, and I'm guessing I would with some other services too.

 

On one host I have an SSH server and an HTTP server listening on ports 22 and 80 respectively. Both of these I can connect to from any device on my 'internal' network using IPv4 & 6.

 

I can connect to the web host from public internet. However, I cannot SSH. (using IPv6).

BUT, if I change SSH to listen on port 80, I can connect from public internet just fine.

 

So, something's blocking port 22. Turning entire firewall off does not make any difference, so I'm assuming there's another IPv6 firewall. Problem is, I can't find anywhere in the GUI where I can change its settings. Can anyone shed any light on this?

I put my modem into bridge mode and run pfSense on an old computer for my firewall/router.  I didn't bother using the modem's firewall, as I found it to be pathetic.  You might consider doing the same.

 

BTW, if you use a separate router/firewall, Rogers will provide up to a /56, which is 256 /64s or 2^72 addresses.  Hopefully that will be enough for you.  😉

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

Anyone else in the K-W area having serious problems with IPv6 today after complete service outages last night? 

 

Initially unable to obtain an IPv6 address this morning but after two Rogers-initiated factory resets, I have what looks like a valid address. It just doesn't work.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

I was at my uncle's tonight and noticed, in addition to the normal link local and global unicast addresses, I also got FC00:: unique local addresses.  Is this normal for Rogers.  I don't recall seeing that in the brief time I had my own modem set up in router mode.  According to Wikipedia, that block of unique local addresses hasn't been assigned by the IETF yet.

Here's some info that shows Rogers is leading the pack, with IPv6 in Canada.
