Problems with HE /48 IPv6
« on: January 13, 2014, 11:39:53 AM »

Hello guys,


First off, I apologize if this has already been discussed. I saw some similar threads, but I'm not sure if it's the same issue that I'm having, so therefore I'm opening a new one.

Anyways, I'm having issues with accessing certain IPv6 hosts from my computers that have the HE /48 IPv6 assigned to them. My router has HE /64 assigned to it, and it has no issues as far as I can tell, the problem is only with hosts with the /48 assigned.

Here's an example:

Ping from my router and traceroute(/64 IPv6 assigned to it):

-------
$ ping6 -c3 www.he.net
PING www.he.net(he.net) 56 data bytes
64 bytes from he.net: icmp_seq=1 ttl=57 time=79.9 ms
64 bytes from he.net: icmp_seq=2 ttl=57 time=80.1 ms
64 bytes from he.net: icmp_seq=3 ttl=57 time=79.9 ms

--- www.he.net ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 3 received, 0% packet loss, time 2002ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 79.924/80.034/80.197/0.117 ms

$ traceroute6 www.he.net

Here's what the same looks like from my hosts running the /48 subnet:

------------

Keep in mind that my /48 hosts can access other IPv6 address without any issues:

------------
# ping6 -c3  www.google.com

64 bytes from iad23s08-in-x12.1e100.net: icmp_seq=3 ttl=56 time=39.0 ms

So the issue is only happening when I try to access certain IPv6 hosts such as www.yahoo.com or www.he.net.

Anyone have any ideas as what what's going on?

Thank you in advance.

Maybe the routing entry for your /48 has not propagated everywhere in the HE network. You should file a ticket with ipv6@he.net and ask them to look into it.

You can use http://lg.he.net/ to see what the traceroute looks like from the other end. I don't know if it will provide any additional clues.

Thanks a lot for the response kasperd!

I've gone ahead and opened a ticket with HE. I'll see what their response is.
