tunnel tserv3.fmt2.ipv6.he.net down?
« on: July 31, 2012, 08:12:24 AM »

Hello,

I have 2 tunnels:
Tunnel [ 2 / 5 ]   Routed /64   Routed /48   Description
XXX.tunnel.tserv3.fmt2.ipv6.he.net    2001:470:XXX:79d::/64 2001:470:XXX::/48   test1
YYY.tunnel.tserv25.sin1.ipv6.he.net 2001:470:YYY:5b9::/64 2001:470:YYY::/48 test2

Configuring the remote / local endpoint on Openbsd 5.1 for test1 results in the impossibility to ping the Server IPv6 Address tunnel endpoint (gateway) nor the www.kame.net site (no route to host even thought the route is here)
Doing the exact same configuration (updated the local IPv4 to the correct one etc.) with the tunnel test2 gives no issues at all. I can ping the ipv6 tunnel endpoint=gateway and ping6 www.kame.net
changing the configuration back to test1 does not work at all.

Since the only settings changing in the conf are the tunnel endpoints (ipv6 and ipv4), i suppose the POP tunnel tserv3.fmt2.ipv6.he.net down? has a problem??

What steps could be done?

cheers,
cam

If you think it's down, email ipv6@he.net

hello,

yes i have seen that page .. but when changing to another POP, I get my tunnel working.. so I am wondering where is the issue..

anyway i sent an email to ipv6@he.net. will keep you posted if it gets solved.

This is what I see when I run traceroute6 to the first tunnel:

The result looks a little bit different, but I don't get a reply from your gateway on any of the two. If I do a traceroute to the server end of the tunnel, I do get a reply in both cases.

There are so many possible explanations, and since I have no access to either end of the tunnel, I cannot do much more to debug this. I suggest you try to run a traceroute to the IPv4 address of each tunnel server and post the results, so we can say if that provides any hints.

Hello,

thank you for your reply.
I sent that email to ipv6@he.net and then went to sleep.
This morning when I woke up, I got an email from ipv6@he.net (very quick !! really great) saying they dont see any issues on their end nor did any changes.
I did some ping / ping6 and well, everything is back to normal and I didnt change anything as well..
To be honest, not sure what happened in between...

Cheers,

My guess is some problem on the IPv4 connection between the two endpoints of the tunnel. An IPv4 traceroute at the time where it was going on may have revealed where on the path it happened.

We'll never know for sure unless it happens again.

I havent done a traceroute between my ipv4 and the remote ipv4.
However I did manage to ping remote_ipv4 without any problem.

I will keep that in mind for next time..

thanks

Then a standard traceroute will probably not tell you much more, except if the problem happens to be correlated with a change in the route. There is another possibility, but it will require much more specialized tools.

A traceroute with proper 6in4 packets could work the following way. The IPv6 packet is constructed as an ordinary and fully valid packet leaving your network, but with a hop limit of just one. This IPv6 packet is then inserted into IPv4 packets with increasing TTL.

Then you will get ordinary time to live exceeded errors until you reach the tunnel server, at which point you should immediately get an ICMPv6 error indicating the hop limit has expired on the IPv6 packet. While performing such a traceroute keep an eye out for all the ICMP and ICMPv6 errors that you get back.

A lot of work, but may reveal if something really strange is going on. An example of what strange things you can find with a method similar to the above is a router that instead of sending a time to live expired message will take the encapsulated IPv6 packet and forward that instead.

Hello,

Opening this thread again..
Since my first post, I faced it 4 more times and right now again. My ipv4 local endpoint is set to my correct external IPv4 address.
Any idea to diagnose the issue?

You should compare the tcpdump on gif0 (which based on your output must be the virtual interface) with a tcpdump on the physical interface, the tunnelled packets are send over. If the physical interface was called eth0, you could run tcpdump -pni eth0 'proto 41'

Based on your output, it does sound like a problem on the tunnel server. If tcpdump on the physical interface shows the same packets as tcpdump on the virtual interface, then I think the problem is on the tunnel server. If the problem persists, you should contact ipv6@he.net again.

thanks for the reply.
Issue still persists even after overnight. I have tcpdump both on gif0 (virtual interface, you are right) and sis2 (my physical interface) while doing a traceroute6 -n 2001:470:1f04:79d::1
Performing a traceroute from my other server to my local ipv6 endpoint and performing the same tcpdump on both gif0 and sis2 does not capture any single packets.

I have emailed a few times the ipv6@he.net but they came back with the same exact answer "nothing is wrong on their side"
I am wondering what happens on my side then...

Your tunnel endpoint is behind NAT. There is nothing wrong with that per se, but it opens up for lots of possible ways the connection can break. It depends very much on which NAT you are using, and how it is configured. On some NAT units it can work reliably, if properly configured. On some NAT units it doesn't work at all.

Try to run a tcpdump on the WAN interface of your NAT device.

Thanks for the reply.
after rebooting my upstream device/router, the tunnel got  back to work.
That was indeed a tricky issue... Aztech to blame.. and me to trust that device to work flawlessly...

Will check it up and see if the problem can be reproduced and if rebooting that upstream device  solves the problem.

thanks !

That can happen with other vendors too.
