Ubuntu gateway/client issues (dropping connection)
« on: January 14, 2011, 11:34:29 AM »

Hi

I have a Ubuntu 10.04 server with the the HE tunnel correctly configured on br0 acting as a gateway.  From the server, at all times, ipv6 connectivity works.  radvd is correctly advertising the link-local of the interface.  However, I am having problems from Ubuntu 10.10 desktops.  I haven't provided routes and interface details because it does work - just not all the time - but I can do it it would help.

From the desktop I can ping the server, and ssh to it by its ipv6 address.  But I cannot access ::/0 until I have run tracepath6 first - and then it will work for a maximum of 10 minutes.

e.g.

Code: [Select]
simon@hadrian:~$ ping6 ipv6.google.com
PING ipv6.google.com(2a00:1450:8006::93) 56 data bytes
^C
--- ipv6.google.com ping statistics ---
5 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 4033ms

Code: [Select]
simon@hadrian:~$ tracepath6 ipv6.google.com
 1?: [LOCALHOST]                        0.033ms pmtu 1500
 1:  2001:470:1f08:xxxx::3                                 1.207ms

 2:  2001:470:1f08:xxxx::3                                 0.690ms pmtu 1480
 2:  smitten-1.tunnel.tserv5.lon1.ipv6.he.net             41.147ms
 3:  gige-g4-6.core1.lon1.he.net                          34.579ms
 4:  2001:7f8:4::3b41:1                                   34.426ms !A
     Resume: pmtu 1480

Code: [Select]
simon@hadrian:~$ ping6 ipv6.google.com
PING ipv6.google.com(2a00:1450:8006::93) 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 2a00:1450:8006::93: icmp_seq=1 ttl=56 time=27.0 ms

64 bytes from 2a00:1450:8006::93: icmp_seq=3 ttl=56 time=27.3 ms
64 bytes from 2a00:1450:8006::93: icmp_seq=4 ttl=56 time=27.5 ms
64 bytes from 2a00:1450:8006::93: icmp_seq=5 ttl=56 time=27.7 ms
^C
--- ipv6.google.com ping statistics ---
5 packets transmitted, 5 received, 0% packet loss, time 4004ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 27.065/27.366/27.745/0.286 ms

And then a few minutes later, I would have to repeat the process.  If I ssh to the gateway by ipv6 then connectivity remains for as long as I remain connected, but not if I connect by ipv4.  I don't believe it is a firewall issue, as it happens with ufw enabled or disabled on both client and server.

Any ideas why this may be happening?
