Using VPN and a IPv6
« on: May 28, 2010, 01:20:14 PM »

Hey there,

I've got a little problem with the new VPN option. First of all - thank you very much for that. It's a great idea. My problem is that the VPN gateway has got the same IP as the ipv6 tunnel server ( So if I connect to the vpn, a new route is added to send every packet to over the old non-vpn-channel, while every other packet uses the vpn tunnel as a gateway route. But now the packets to the v6-gateway ( again) are sent using the non-vpn connection; that of course breaks v6 connectivity.

How can I solve this? :-) Thanks!

You have to set up a policy route to force packets coming from your VPN endpoint get routed down the tunnel.  That process is discussed in another thread:
