And - of course - a typo was the culprit. Thank you for pointing that out.

The internal interface of my firewall had a static IPv6 and this one had the "c" error


Sorry for that, here are the real values:

2001:470:1f0a:160d::1 is HE Server
2001:470:1f0a:160d::2 is Router

2001:470:1f0b:160d::/64 is "routed /64"

So my router gives out this subnet and clients should generate any address beginning with "2001:470:1f0b:160d:", correct?

My firewall has 2001:470:1f0b:160d::1

But every client has an address with prefix 2001:470:1f0c:160d:: (there is a "c" in the third group, not a "b"). Why? Am I even "allowed" to use that prefix since Tunnelbroker does not provide this one to me?

Hope this explains it better


I have a router and a Hardware Firewall behind said Router. Router manages the HE Tunnel.

HE Server IPv6 is 2001:x:A:y::1
Router Address is 2001:x:A:y::2
Routed /64 is      2001:x:B:y::/64

Router address is fd00::something. Router is exposed IPv4 & IPv6 for Firewall.
Firewall address is first address from "Routed /64", 2001:x:B:y::1

What I don't understand are the addresses for my clients behind the firewall. I would expect those to be something from my "Routed /64", but they are not. In fact, they all have a different prefix, meaning 2001:x:C:y::/64 (the third group is "C", not "B" as I would expect it. Also the "y" is identical in all addresses). This prefix is not shown in my HE Account nor anywhere else. Can someone elaborate on that?
