ipv6 tunnel not working on Vyatta

Hi All,

I have used the configuration provided by the tunnel "Example Configurations" tab and i still have no joy, neither the router nor my lan clients can access any external IPv6 resources.

Network Topology is as follows


we have BT Infinity so our vyatta edge device receives a DHCP assigned address but we do have a public static-ip range that points to it.

The Edge router is set to nat all traffic for the tunnel ip and send it to the lan router.

I can't for the life of me figure out whats going on  ???

anyone have any ideas?



To give me a better idea about what is going on, could you try setting as your tunnel server and then try to ping 2001:470:28:940:de6e:7f3e:5430:8ed8? It is not a real tunnel server, so it won't work for general traffic, but it can reach that one IPv6 address.


My router is not behind NAT. I have a unique public IP. I think the setup till router is ok as I can ping IPV6 address from router's (Dlink DIR-615) web interface. But cannot connect from the Windows PCs.

Any suggestions?


Did you try to ping 2001:470:28:940:de6e:7f3e:5430:8ed8?
