Questions & Answers / Re: Setting up Tunnelbroker on...

You must use 6in4 (RFC 4213) not 6rd (RFC 5569).

So, if you router doesn't support 6in4 you must change router or try to flash OpenWRT.
Questions & Answers / /48 blocks not available?
Last post by finitud - April 29, 2023, 05:03:18 AM
I'm new to the tunnelbroker service, so apologies if this is obvious.

I have created two tunnels to two different locations, and initially requested a /48 block to one of them. After configuring my systems, I decided that I needed the /48 on the other location, so I tried adding one. It said "Error: Maximum /48s requested. Please try again later.", so I assumed I can only have one /48 in total. Fine, I remove the /48 from the location where I don't need it, try again... "Error: Maximum /48s requested. Please try again later."

Now I get the error no matter which tunnel I try creating the /48 on. Did I screw up my only chance to set up a /48 block?

I'll add this as an update. When I do ipconfig /all and check my router, the IPv6 address listed is assigned to my ISP. However, they are not providing us with IPv6 addresses yet. So, now my question is how do I switch it to my IPv6 tunnel instead of the one that Tunnelbroker is giving them? I don't want to have to go through another IPv6 provider, if I can avoid it. And I don't want to go through the hassle of installing OpenWRT and reconfiguring my entire network, if I can avoid that as well.

Have a great night. :)

I'm curious if anyone has gotten this to work. I could have sworn that I had it working at one point, but it isn't now. I don't have an option for "6in4" but I do have an option for "6 to 4" tunnels. Would that be the option that I need to use? Currently, I have it set up as a 6rd Tunnel. If this won't work, I'll have to see if I can flash it with OpenWRT, but I don't think it's an option either.

Something similar is also on the Warsaw tunnel, (tserv1.waw1.he.net) this happens only at day, at night back to normal.

This is sad, someone abusing this great service ;/

You don't need a /48 anyways. I am currently using a single /64 which is enough for a simple home network.

Hi again,

Sorry for replying to my own post, but I've had a reply in the Vodafone forum where I'd posted as well which appears to have solved the problem.

I'd left the MTU of the tunnel at it's defaults, but was advised to set it at 1452 at both ends, and sure enough, this seems to have solved the problem, with all the tests now working fine, and ipv6 only sites accessible without any problems.

I've taken the tunnel down to do some fine tuning, including firewalling the IPV6 side (I'd left it open for testing) but looks like the issue is solved.

Just wanted to report back here in case it helps anyone else.

IPv6 on Linux & BSD & Mac / IPV6 tunnel - ping works but T...

I'm trying to get IPV6 working for the machines on my lan using an HE tunnel using a Raspberry Pi as the local endpoint.

The problem is that although I can get the tunnel to establish, the machines on the LAN all get addresses in the HE prefix, and pinging ipv6.google.com works from all of them, any attempt to browse using ipv6 fails and running the various checkers don't pick up my IPV6 address. Also if I try and install something on one of the PIs I have, it fails saying it can't access a site - quoting the IPV6 address, so presumably the same problem.

I've done some research and came across a few posts that suggest that this could be down to a bug in the Broadcom chipset in my router and I need to turn off flow cache, but I've also had someone say that because the PI is the endpoint then the router chipset isn't relevant.

Can anyone help?

For info, I'm in the UK using Vodafone full fibre internet, using a Raspberry PI4 as the tunnel endpoint. The PI is behind the router using NAT. I have a static IP from Vodafone and the PI is assigned a specific reserved address by the DHCP on the router.

The various configs etc are :

On the Raspberry PI :

General Questions & Suggestions / Slave reverse domain he.net na...
Last post by LucaZ - April 07, 2023, 07:03:46 AM
Let's say I had delegated from he.net for subnet 2001:740:abcd:abcd::/64 including delegation for reverse domain, so I can define RR of type AAAA in subnet space and PTR in domain d.c.b.a.d.c.b.a.

If appropriate, can I create a slave domain of the d.c.b.a.d.c.b.a. domain on the ns1.he.net namerver?

If yes, is "d.c.b.a.d.c.b.a." the domain name to refer to in the "Add a new slave" function?
