Configure your Ubuntu box as a IPv6 router
« on: February 20, 2017, 11:41:02 AM »

hi every body,
i will explain to you my situation

my OS is ubuntu 14.04

i use a 3g modem which give me just a dynamic ipv4 his interface is ppp0

i create successfully a tunnel with he and i can ping

i modify     /etc/sysctl.conf

Uncomment the line which contains net.ipv6.conf.default.forwarding=1

now after install radvd and configure it  in /etc/radvd.conf

interface wlan0
   AdvSendAdvert on;
   prefix 2001:470:1f13:40c::/64
        AdvOnLink on;
        AdvAutonomous on;

i use the wlan0 interface because i want to give a ipv6 adresses using a WIFI automatically
then i restart it sudo /etc/init.d/radvd restart

but when i create a wifi with my laptop in the clients side i just see a ipv4 adresses and no ipv6

i use this

so i hope some one help me

i ask am i supposed to configure the wlan0 in /etc/network/interfaces
 or is that works just for the eth0 interface
