Problems configuring Mac running 10.12.4
« on: April 16, 2017, 11:07:41 AM »

I have a Mac running 10.12.4 on which I am trying to configure a tunnel.
The Mac's IP is 47.144.xxx.yyy.
The
Server IPv4 Address:66.220.18.42
Server IPv6 Address:2001:470:c:XXX::1/64
Client IPv4 Address:47.144.132.189
Client IPv6 Address:2001:470:c:XXX::2/64

I have the following result from ifconfig gif1

gif1: flags=8051<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1280
   tunnel inet 47.144.XXX.XXX --> 66.220.18.42
   inet6 fe80::3ac9:86ff:XXXX:5da%gif1 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x12
   inet6 2001:470:c:XXX::2 --> 2001:470:c:XXX::1 prefixlen 128
   nd6 options=201<PERFORMNUD,DAD>

Unfortunately:

ping6 2001:470:c:f52::2
PING6(56=40+8+8 bytes) 2001:470:c:XXX::2 --> 2001:470:c:XXX::2
^C
--- 2001:470:c:XXX::2 ping6 statistics ---
13 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100.0% packet loss

I clearly have something configured incorrectly, but I am not sure what to check. On my working FreeBSD 11 box, that ping of the gif IPv6 address works fine.

Is the MTU the same?  You're not using the same tunnel on your Mac as you are FreeBSD, right?

Different tunnels on both boxes, but even if they were the same, that would just prevent them from working, but I should still be able to ping6 the local end of the tunnel.
