Title: I give up "There is no driver selected for the device information set or element
Post by: Hoser13 on December 06, 2017, 04:15:41 PM
netsh interface ipv6 add v6v4tunnel interface= "private" localaddress=xxxxxx remoteaddress=xxxxx

The line above has never worked trying to set up the tunnel.  Always get the error in the subject line.  I have tried every driver install and service start I can imagine to no avail.  Even HE support has been unable to help me thus far.  I have received no help from technet or stackoverflow.

I went as far as doing a fresh W10 install and I still get the error.

WTF?

Have you tried on a stable build like 1703 or 1709?  I ran the command you mention and it worked perfectly fine on 1709

I don't know if I can do that without starting again from scratch.  Ugh.  I will give it a try.

You can't, but you can spin up a VM and try without wiping your current system.

No good.  Could not get the VM to spin up.  Created it but it crashed on every startup attempt.  Guess  I am SOL.

I think you have bigger problems...you should be able to boot a Windows vm without it crashing.  You have a computer problem, not an IPv6 problem

There is nothing functionally wrong with this machine other than using an insider preview as an OS.

I bit the bullet and started from scratch with a stable W10.  I was able to run the commands, but I am still not getting a passing score on IPv6 tests.  After the commands have been run, and even after adding a DNS entry for IPv6, I still fail.  Any suggestions?

I have some, but I don't know which are valid because you didn't say which specific test you failed.
Title: Re: I give up "There is no driver selected for the device information set or element
Post by: Hoser13 on December 11, 2017, 06:02:27 PM
I deleted the tunnel that I setup and went back and used my locally assigned IP and I thought it was working, and then I could not access any internet sites.  I removed the DNS entry that is suggested in the config section and I was able to connect to websites again, but I am still failing tests.  I am going to try a few more things...

You've told me your tunnel works, so I'm not sure what I would be looking for.

We need details, without them, we can't help.

Post by: Hoser13 on December 13, 2017, 05:13:39 PM
I just know that none of the IPv6 tests show that I have 6 capability.  What details can I provide?
Title: Re: I give up "There is no driver selected for the device information set or element
Post by: cholzhauer on December 13, 2017, 06:00:25 PM
Well, that's more than I knew before

Can you ping an ipv6 site and get a reply?  If not, your tunnel isn't up

Make sure your isp isn't blocking protocol41, make sure your router isn't blocking it, and make sure that if you have an rfc1918 address that you followed the instructions and altered the commands you used to create the tunnel
Title: Re: I give up "There is no driver selected for the device information set or element
Post by: Hoser13 on December 13, 2017, 07:35:13 PM
Changes made:

- Changed router to an AP (as I have the ISP router as well, where I turned off at least the 2G wireless.

- Added a DMZ for my new laptop address from the main router.  I no longer need (or can) change most settings on the AP as they are no longer relevant.  As a result, I get 20/20 on http://ipv6-test.com/, I am recognized as IPv6 on the NE site, and I can get a response from a ping -6 on google.

I thank you for you patience and assistance.  You have been awesome with your guidance.

Apparently, Windows Spring Creators Update aka Redstone 4 aka 1803 breaks IPv6-tunneling. Even in the final build. Let's hope 1804 will fix it. I'll sit it out for now, as I have no time to do a full reinstall (and I deleted the rollback version already).

No more fixes.  It will no longer be developed:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/planning/windows-10-1803-removed-features

6to4 has been disabled by default since Windows 10, version 1607 (the Anniversary Update), ISATAP has been disabled by default since Windows 10, version 1703 (the Creators Update), and Direct Tunnels has always been disabled by default. Please use native IPv6 support instead.

This only proves how CLUELESS Microsoft is about the Internet.  Although there are plenty of places using IPv6, there are far more places that have not deployed anything IPv6.  In fact, my co-location facility only has 2 IPv6 enabled clients (including me) out of about 1000, and neither of my home ISPs (at 2 locations) have IPv6 (whether native or 6RD).  Most people even think IPv6 is "new" as of 2012, but I've been using it in one form or another (starting with 6to4) since 2003.  These mechanisms shouldn't have been removed because they're still needed.  As for those off by default, at least they're still available.

Except for "Direct Tunnels", which appears to be 6in4. I think what they mean by that this isn't enabled by default is that there is no server from Microsoft acting as tunnel endpoint to serve IPv6 addresses. However, activating this manually with HE as endpoint isn't working anymore, obviously.

Still hoping for a fix. Can't believe how oblivious Microsoft is ditching IPv6 transition technologies in general. Those technologies will still be needed for at least another 5 years, probably though more like 10 years. And demanding for users to use native IPv6, well, you can't really chose your service provider in many places of the world...

Not always.  I still find most business software is Microsoft Windows-centric.

Post by: kriteknetworks on June 04, 2018, 06:02:32 PM
sure, but HE tunnels arent business software. nor has the OP even made mention of business/enterprise tunnel use.
Title: Re: I give up "There is no driver selected for the device information set or element
Post by: tjeske on June 05, 2018, 05:19:47 AM
Also, insider builds are not really suited for business use.

However, the user could even use his own tunnel setup, not using HE, and that setup would've stopped working as well.
