Questions & Answers / Re: tunnel down (endpoint Prague)
« on: March 18, 2017, 02:26:08 PM »
Down again, though endpoint still pingable. I guess just maintenance?

Edit: Never mind. Working again fine. Just a minor hickup. Status page shows all green again as well.

CU? You mean Creator's Update? So that means you're on the Windows Insider program? So it's not fixed on the stable/mainstream channel?

Questions & Answers / Re: Testing protocol 41
« on: February 22, 2017, 09:35:31 AM »
I don't think proto 41 works like that. It's not like you open a connection, and this connection stays open and all data flows through it and the switches at your end will know where to send the data. No. Proto 41 needs end-to-end connectivity. How should the gateway know it is you that wants this package? You can monitor your interface with Wireshark to check for incoming proto 41 packages, but I think most 4G gateways will only work for TCP and - if you're lucky - UDP and ICMP.

I know it's a lot of work, but there's also the option to take your server elsewhere, to a service, that offers a whole subnet. I wouldn't even think of IPv6-nat as well. Many devices probably won't even be able to work that way. At least you'd be the one controlling the port forwardings, so you wouldn't have to worry that much about your monitoring equipment.

And no, SixXS is/was the only service with ayiya.

Questions & Answers / Re: Using TunnelBroker for several routers

Which should be as follows:
LAN Prefix Length: 64 (if you didn't apply for 48 prefix)
LAN IPv6 Prefix: 2001:470:28:15c:: (check in your account settings whether the "28"-part is actually correct).

IPv6 settings of your access points shouldn't need any configurations. Just make sure that the LAN-device on those other units has IPv6 turned on (or not disabled). Also, your tp-link repeater might still pass the IPv6-RA to other devices, even if it doesn't assign itself an IPv6 (I'm using a TP-Link WR841ND unit as AP in my network, and even though it's a pre-IPv6 version, it passes the RA requests to all clients, as it happens at a different level of the OSI layers).

Ok, AP mode is the way to go. But how do you connect to the HE tunnel? Which device does this and how?

Does every router span its own subnet? Then you would need to configure prefix delegation and setting up the correct routes on each device. Much easier than running those router cascades is to run them in one single subnet, only the first unit working as a router, and the others working in switch mode.

Care to share your setup?

Berlin is working again. Now let's hope Prague comes back soon as well.

Thanks so much people at HE! You're the best!

It can work if it's a 1:1 NAT or if they forward IP-Protocol (not port!) 41 to your home router. Protocol-forwarding is very unlikely to happen, and 1:1 CGNAT is very rare (my ISP uses it!).

The better way in this case is AYIYA (what sixxs is using). There's always the option of renting an IPv6-capable server and setting up your own tunnel service. Though I have to admit I'd like to see AYIYA support from HE :) (would be great for mobile phone use).

I do have native IPv6 at home. Just at university I need the tunnel, cause I couldn't convince the IT department to switch to IPv6. They'll do it eventually, but god knows when. However, they were so kind to allow my tunnel through the firewall.

Prague-server being now at Berlin is then probably also the reason why some services mistake me being from CZ. If they take usage patterns from genuine CZ users connecting to the Prague-server in Berlin, they might appear similar to mine (also, I'm not too far from the border, in case they're using ping times and such). Bit annoying at times, if I use services that rely on the false GeoIP-database. Thanks for the info.

As for the tunnel, the people in Berlin are most likely not working a night shift to resolve this (I'm not sure how the industry works, though). So they'll respond to the request tomorrow morning, and hopefully during the day, or latest by Thursday, the tunnel will be up again.

But they failed at the same time, the same minute. It must be related, not unluckyness. Same/related hosting company maybe? (Berlin: IPB CarrierColo Berlin; Prague: CEColo/Sitel; however, Budapest is "CE Colo", so same as Prague?, but Budapest is working).

If these people has a choice -- as in, their ISP providing a (usable) IPv6 connectivity -- they wouldn't be complaining here in the first place.
In Germany, there are plenty. Only reason could be that you want native IPv4 as well. Then you might be limited in the more rural regions (that includes smaller cities). I must stand corrected: some ISPs don't offer IPv6 for their commercial products.

I'm pretty sure some people would be very happy to pay for the tunnel service to get some sort of SLA, but there's just no such paid service being offered by HE.
I agree that would be nice. But on the other hand, we can't force them...
Also, you do know that you can build your own tunnel server? (it's in German, but you'll the important parts)

Well, I have no problem using the HE tunnel for commercial stuff (I didn't see where the usage policy forbids this), but I would feel obliged to tell my clients that there's no guarantee that this'll work all the time. What if HE decided to shut their tunnel servers down for good, with a few weeks notice (anyone remember gogo6)? What would he tell his customers? What if they have a 2 years contract, and suddenly he's not able to provide the services anymore? It's just a risk I wouldn't take, but it's up to everyone to do business as he likes. Again, no blame here, just arguments from my point of view. Live and let live.

Well, then you shouldn't offer commercial services over a free service that has no obligations?! That's quite the risk you are taking and your customers are right to complain. (sorry for being so blunt, it's just what I think)

Why don't you get a paid service that has a liability towards you as well?

I'm not sure we'll hear here from the official side. But I'm pretty sure they'll reply by email by tomorrow. Work day has just started on the other side of the Atlantic.

Exactly the same time for Berlin. My log says there was some package loss an hour before already, but it totally broke down at 14:30. What a coincidence? Maybe a failed update? And then, why nothing else in the vicinity (like Warsaw)?

I opened a ticket. I guess they're aware of it now and will do what they can.

What I find weird is that the status page shows all tunnel servers as up and running.

@McRip: I feel your discomfort, but you're using a free product with great support so far, and all at no cost (cause it's free!). HE has no obligation to offer anything to you at all. If they decide now to take the Berlin and Prague servers offline for good, it's well within their right (I hope they won't, though! Please don't!!!). So just sit back and wait.

Same here (Saxony, East-Germany).

sorry, actually, I'm connecting to Berlin (, but that is down as well!
