TP-Link Archer C7 appears to have very limited IPv6 support
« on: January 04, 2018, 12:09:13 PM »

When setting up a 6to4 tunnel, the only configuration option I have is to adjust the MTU.

All of the fancy features such as bandwidth shaping, and port forwarding (read: making holes in the firewall), and possibly guest access appear to be missing for IPv6.

Is it possible to forward a HE tunnel to my "real" IPv6 router (presumably an old PC made router) without disabling 6to4 tunneling on the main router itself?

Status page says:
Quote
Connection Type:   
Tunnel 6to4
IPv6 Address:   
2002:c630:8f93::c630:8f93/48
IPv6 Default Gateway:   
::192.88.99.1
Primary IPv6 DNS:   
Secondary IPv6 DNS:   
db8:1111:ffff::1000

Not sure who I am getting the tunnel from, but suspect it is my ISP (rather than transit provider). My early speculation was the router manufacturer, but I doubt that now.

2002 is 6to4, not 6in4, so that's probably why it won't work

If it were mine, I would disable what you have on the router and pass it through to something else

Missed that distinction. Does not appear that 6in4 is actually an option.

I think I will leave it as-is until I actually get my "real" router set up.

My Bitcoin XT node is already making IPv6 connections (outbound only, I assume/hope).
