i had my tunnel running for a long while with no problems but the past couple of days i had to change my modem/router because my old one did not support the new vDSL lines.

after doing that i cannot get my ipv6 tunnel to work anymore for some reason.

im behind a LAN so im using my local ipv4 instead of my external ipv4 like its suggested and its been working like that for a long while.

i tried to restart the network, restarted the server as well at some point but i still cant ping6 anything.

i add the details to my ubuntu server using the "Linux-route2" method i just replace my exteranl ipv4 with my internal ipv4.

any suggestions on what might i be doing wrong?


Does your new router pass protocol 41?

Did your IPv4 address change?  If so, did you update it on the website?


thanks for the reply.

my static ip has been changed and i updated it to the right one.

about protocol 41.. hmm i dont really know about that.. i dont think i had to configure that in my old router.. what should i be looking for? or how can i test if protocol 41 is allowed


I don't know of a way to test for passing protcol 41...still looking for that

If your router has DMZ functionality, you could put your host in there and test

What router are you using?


this is the router im using:    Zyxle P-2802HWL-I1


Quickly parsing the users guide for your modem didn't reveal anything about IPv6, protocol 41 or dmz.  Hopefully the manual is wrong and there's a mention of a DMZ somewhere in the setup of the router.

What router did you use before this one?
