Author Topic: CentOS IPv6 router passing packets out via HE tunnel but not back to local LAN  (Read 5061 times)

Hi All,

First, I'm a noob when it comes to ipv6. I've read up on the various docs and searched the forums and have managed to get most of the configs together for a ipv6 router running on CentOS.
The tunnel to HE is up and running and I can ping6/traceroute6/and browse from the router/firewall to the ipv6 world.

[windows7] <---->[eth1]linux router[sit1][eth0_publicip]<====>[hurricane_electric]

I also, have radvd configured on the router's internal interface (eth1). A windows 7 laptop gets a ipv6 address from radvd and also has a link local ipv6 addr on it's interface.

I'm trying to ping out from the windows7 client to ipv6.google.com. I see the packets come through the router and go out to HE via sit1. I see replies come back but they never make it back to the windows7 client. And here's where I'm stuck. I'm not sure what to do next, and any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Here are the relevant configs (I think I've included everything):
IPv6 Tunnel Endpoints
Server IPv4 Address:216.66.22.2
Server IPv6 Address:2001:470:7:d74::1/64
Client IPv4 Address:108.36.164.246
Client IPv6 Address:2001:470:7:d74::2/64

Available DNS Resolvers
Anycasted IPv6 Caching Nameserver:2001:470:20::2
Anycasted IPv4 Caching Nameserver:74.82.42.42

Routed IPv6 Prefixes
Routed /64:2001:470:8:d74::/64
Routed /48:2001:470:e43c::/48 [X]

You need an IPv6 address on eth1

It needs to be in the same subnet as the address of your Windows machine
