Hello, just short but important question :D

is "tserv6.fra1" down?
i cant reach it and tunnel server status page says
that it is down




Seems to be an bigger issue... From a technician perspective would i be interested in the reason for this downtime


According to the status site, it is up again:


But it is still not working for me.


For it is working again: https://theyosh.nl/smokeping.cgi?target=IPv6
Just added the IPv4 endpoint today, but the IPv6 graph shows the downtime.



I am unable to get the tunnel back up again (sitting on Vodafone/Kabel Deutschland) since 25th of August. I get ICMP unreachables back when trying to reconnect. > 31.16.56.##: ICMP protocol 41 port 13717 unreachable, length 108

I was able to set up a new, different tunnel terminating in US.

Anyone experiencing the same? The tunnelconfig is quite old. Terminating in an Openwrt 21.02 router. Happy to provide missing information

same situation here. I reactivated my very old HE account, created a new tunnel to FRA1, but I am not getting any incoming packets on my Telekom DSL line. I created a second tunnel via LON1, that was working out of the box. It seems, that FRA1 is not forwarding packets.
Is there any official support available?

Kind regards,


Thought i should post here - for me the tunnel to FRA1 is working again.

for some reason I reactivated the tunnel and was surprised to see traffic passing, and it seems to be working fine so far - no issues noticed.

Good side effect - an intensive exercise on V6 NAT, IP renumbering and realizing one need to plan for this much earlier. Perhaps the idea of ULAs aren't that terrible after all... ?
