Questions & Answers / Re: IPv6 tunnel and GeoIP
Last post by paalbo - June 11, 2024, 11:16:28 AM
Hi all.

Just to give you folks an update on this.
  • /64 adresses get often blocked by Google and other websites. Therefor use a /48 subnet.
  • Login to your https://dns.he.net/ account and add LOC and the coordinates for your location.

I have done this and in nearly all lookups for the location it shows up as Norway.
Mind you, on film sites like Netflix, Pluto etc. it's kinda difficult to make it work. So block those sites for using ipv6.  
Hello, I am using short IPv6 address 2600:: for testing connection. It was working for years, but some time ago it is not reachable from HE tunnel anymore. Is there a way to fix it?
General Discussion / HE Tunnel via wireguard
Last post by Pedro Buffon - June 05, 2024, 11:19:04 AM
Hi guys, so i currently trying to configure up an HE tunnel via wireguard toa Debian 12 system, wireguard already working. the following is a systemd service file that i`m using after researching:

Description=he.net IPv6 tunnel
ExecStart=/usr/bin/ip tunnel add he-ipv6 mode sit remote <Server IPv4 Address> local <Here i use the gateway from wireguard on the server> ttl 255
ExecStart=/usr/bin/ip link set he-ipv6 up mtu 1480
ExecStart=/usr/bin/ip addr add <Client IPv6 Address> dev he-ipv6
ExecStart=/usr/bin/ip -6 route add ::/0 dev he-ipv6
ExecStop=/usr/bin/ip -6 route del ::/0 dev he-ipv6
ExecStop=/usr/bin/ip link set he-ipv6 down
ExecStop=/usr/bin/ip tunnel del he-ipv6

I have a backup Mikrotik router, the same configuration there works like a charm, i only can`t manage to make it work on debian 12.

In the US a newer option that has come along is Core Transit.  They offer static route tunnels as well as BGP-enabled tunnels.

L2TP and GRE options from what I've seen.  They will also do BGP sessions without advertisements so if you want to consume a full routing table to experiment in a lab they can do that as well which I thought was interesting.

Lower your MTU, start with 1280 (the minimum required by IPv6) and go up until it fails.

Please make sure to change it on BOTH ends of your tunnel.

Perhaps someone will come in handy ...
I have Windows 10 22H2 and if I understood correctly, then M$ turned off IPV6 support as outdated, but did not cut it out.
To enable IPv6, you need to delete the registry parameter DisabledComponents in HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters and restart PC.

PS. Do not forget to make a backup of this parameter

DisabledComponents can have other meanings:

Decimal 32, hexadecimal 20 - Prefer IPV4 instead of IPV6
Decimal 16, hexadecimal 10 - Disable IPV6 for all non-tunnel interfaces
Decimal 1, hexadecimal 1 - Disable IPV6 for all tunnel interfaces
Decimal 17, hexadecimal 11 - Disable IPV6 on all interfaces, except loop

Domain limit was 50 domains. I added 3 domains many years ago, but today I got error `The domain limit has been reached for this account. You must delete one of the domains in order to add an additional.` and limit was changed to 1. I didn't find any news about it and I don't understand how the new limit can impact already added domains.
