External Ping Trouble

We don't care what IPv6 address you use with the tests (ours, someone else), as long as you use one :)



Searched around a found another forum post that looked sort of similar.

Added 2 netsh commands to my config:

netsh interface ipv6 set interface IP6Tunnel forwarding=enabled
netsh interface ipv6 set interface "Wireless Network Connection 3" forwarding=enabled advertise=enabled

Ping now works fine from the Internet.

My wireless adapter is just configured with the IPv6 address, no gateway or DNS specified. IPv4 side has its usual gateway and DNS.

My workstation has VMWare Workstation 8 installed along with 6 Server 2008 VMs. All VMs are bridged. I'm going to see if I can get individual IPv6 addresses from my /64 to function on them as well.

Hope this posting helps others.


OK, for the VMWare VMs it looks like this:

Just set up the IPv6 interface with  the allocated /64 address you want to use and for the gateway address just use the /64 address of the host that has the tunnel defined. That's it.


My VMs are using BRIDGED network connections.
