Since I can't see the whole config, I don't know what he has.  I think you need "ipv6 unicast routing" or something like that.

From the packet sniffs, it looks like he has some HP Procurve switches.  From glancing at the docs, it looks like they do multicast forwarding by default, but didn't give it a good read, just a glance.

@growse: you may want to take a gander at this: http://cdn.procurve.com/training/Manuals/2900-3500-5400-6200-8200-IPv6-Jan08-7-MLD.pdf

Not sure what's plugged into what though.  I presume the router has a built in switch?  If so, are the affected machines plugged into the built in?  Into another switch connected to it?  Are the switches on the right vlan (I imagine so since it sometimes works).  Anywayz, at this point it looks like a layer-2 problem, unless the router is actually receiving the mcast neighbor solicitations and ignoring them for some reason.

I'm running a bunch of procurve switches here at work and they're working great with IPv6.  If you are indeed using Procurve switches, make sure you're running at least a 13.xx firmware, or better yet, the 14.xx

I fixed it for my situation. It was indeed the problem with the "Router Advertisement" like jimb pointed out. I opened a Wireshark on both my Windows laptop and on my Ubuntu laptop. I noticed that on every "Neighbor Solicitation" Ubuntu sent a "Router Advertisement" was returned by the Cisco router. This was not the case on the Windows laptop that did sent out Neighbor Solicitation but not always received a Router advertisement (just like you can see in the pcap from growse), it only received a Router advertisement once in like 2 minutes and then I could use IPv6 for a little wile.
I entered the following command on Vlan 1 of the Cisco router:

Code: [Select]
ipv6 nd ra interval 4
This will force the router to sent a Router advertisement every 4 seconds. For now it is (temporarily)fixed for me, but I keep finding it strange that this behavior does not occur on the Ubuntu system. The systems are connected directly to the Cisco router which has a four port switch, I also swapped the Ethernet cables.
growse can you tell if this also works for you?

Btw, is there a default for the Router Advertisement interval?

That's very odd.  Neighbor Solicitations should be answered by Neighbor Announcements.  Router Advertisements, as far as I understand, are just to announce the presence of a router on the link, and is also used for stateless autoconfig.

One test would be to swap ports on the ubuntu and windows systems.  If the ubuntu sys starts behaving like the windows system, it's probably the configuration of your ports/VLANs etc.  I'm wondering if the ports are all members of the VLAN which the router interface is on, although I don't know how it'd ever work if it wasn't.  It's almost as if the router isn't hearing the multicast neighbor solicitations, or the windows box isn't hearing the replies. 

You also may want to turn on ND debugging on the Cisco and see if you can see the solicitations when they are sent out by the windows box.  (debug ipv6 nd ... ND stuff should then show up on the console and in the log file).

For an example of what it should look like, here's some txt of ND/NA captures on my LAN:

Re: IPv6 on Cisco 877 and clients - strange intermittent connectivity

Hello,

I did some more testing today. I first remove the configured "ipv6 nd ra interval 4" command, because this was just a temporarily fix.

I start doing some test on Windows Vista using a Ethernet cable directly attached to the Cisco 871W router. I opened Wireshark I noticed the following behavior:

1. I opened a ping to Google: "ping ipv6.google.com".
2. Neighbor Solicitations are sent from the Vista host using the IPV6 Link-Local address to a IPv6 multicast. Messages are not seen by the router using "debug ipv6 nd".
3. No answer is received from the Neighbor Solicitation, resulting in a ping timeout.
4. Once in a while a Router Advertisement is sent from the Cisco 781W router and received by the Windows Vista host.
Code: [Select]
router#show ipv6 neighbors
IPv6 Address                              Age Link-layer Addr State Interface
FE80::3143:BC3F:CC37:84AD                   2 0023.ae16.5735  STALE Vl1
2001:470:1F15:14AB:4886:CA6A:F752:BEFC      2 0023.ae16.5735  STALE Vl1

*Nov  6 2009 21:30:23 UTC: ICMPv6-ND:        2592000/604800 (valid/preferred)

IPv6 Address                              Age Link-layer Addr State Interface
FE80::3143:BC3F:CC37:84AD                   0 0023.ae16.5735  REACH Vl1
2001:470:1F15:14AB:4886:CA6A:F752:BEFC      0 0023.ae16.5735  REACH Vl1

5. The ping to ipv6.google.com starts working.
6. And Neighbor Solicitations and Neighbor Advertisement messages are transported. This time using a Link-Local addresses instead of Global and Mulicast as in step 2.
7. After a while I guess the Router Advertisement that was received in step 4 times out and we are back at step 1.

No traffic is blocked on the Windows Vista host, I checked it on the Ethernet wire using a hub with Wireshark.

I did the same with a Ubuntu 9.10 host using the same wire (and thus port/vlan etc).

1. I opened a ping to Google: "ping ipv6.google.com".
2. Router Solicitations are sent from the Ubuntu host. Messages are not seen by the router using "debug ipv6 nd".
3. No answer is received from the Router Solicitations, resulting in a ping timeout.
4. Once in a while a Router Advertisement is sent from the Cisco 781W router and received by the Ubuntu host.
5. The ping to ipv6.google.com start working.
6. Neighbor Solicitations are sent from the router using the Link-Local address to the Ubuntu host on the Link-Global address.
    Neighbor Advertisements are sent from the Ubuntu host using the Link-Global address to the router on the Link-Local address.
7. IPv6 keeps working, I guess that the Router Advertisement stays active and doesn't time out like it did on the Windows Vista host.


My questions:
- It seems that Neighbor Solicitations are only for a while being processed by the Cisco router after a Router Advertisement has been sent by the router itself. How to fix this?
- Why does Windows Vista sent Neighbor Solicitations and Ubuntu Router Solicitations. Which OS is doing it wrong?
- Must Ubuntu not time out the Router Advertisement that it received in step 7

Attached are the pcap of the Windows host and the Ubuntu hosts, also the router config is attached. Open the pcaps using Wireshark and put in "icmpv6" as display filter.

So the router is not seeing the ND packets, since you're not seeing them in the debug output.  Not sure why this is happening, but perhaps, as I mentioned before, it's some issue with the multicasts not making it to the router?

May want to try hooking one of the problem machines and the router interface to a difference switch, or a hub to see if it starts working.  If so then your switch isn't forwarding the mcast ND requests for whatever reason.

Interesting that your tuning of the router advertisement interval fixes it, the default lifetime value is 30 minutes!!

Windows must not be honoring this.

More later after ive checked further.

mrtwrx, did you manage to get more information regarding this problem? I know that once I once got "native" IPv6 connectivity to that Windows machine I removed/disabled all Teredo/ISATAP stuff that provided IPv6 tunnels, I only noticed the problems a few months after that. Maybe it has something to do with that and that Windows also disables some other critical components once you disable/remove Teredo/ISATAP stuff.

The more I see this stuff, the more I'm thinking this particular device or the IOS version people are using on them have some sort of bug in the ND area, or multicast processing area.

My theory is that shortening the RA period only masks the problems since the devices on the LAN learn the hardware address of the router via these RAs, while NA/ND is still failing.  If you make the RA interval short enough, that is, shorter than the expiry time on whatever hosts you are running IPv6 on, the MAC will stay in the neighbor table continually.

So this is just masking the real issue.

Now, if you can ping other devices on the same LAN without issue, it's definitely a problem with the router.  If you also have problems pinging other devices, then it points to some sort of layer 2 issue, or perhaps a problem with Windows itself.

Anyway, that's my additional $.02 on this issue.   :)

Interesting.  You mean in this case, it might actually be a good thing that all my ASA's don't run IOS?

Or at least that version of IOS on that hardware. 

I have no similar problems with a Cisco 7200 w/ IOS 12.4 ... OK.  I don't really have one.  It's dynamips.  But it works just fine.  :P

Also, I'd think that the possibility of failure would even be higher on this dynamips virtual cisco, seeing that it's essentially a VM, and it happens to be running under Windows XP (and using cygwin).  :P

Also, you guys may want to post up this question on somewhere with a wider audience, such as the IPv6-ops list, or maybe even NANOG.

Hi guys,

Apologies for abandoning this slightly, I'll try to answer some of the points raised. It's good to see that others have raised this issue.

1) I've just enabled nd debugging. Will see what happens.

2) There is indeed a procurve in this network. I'll do my best to try and explain the topology: ADSL connection terminates on Cisco 877 running IOS12.4 with HE tunnel. HP Procurve 1800-8G is then plugged into one of the switchports on the router. Most other hosts are then plugged into this switch, two are LACP enabled (just in case that's throwing a wobbly in somewhere). HP firmware was previously PA02.09, just upgraded to PA03.09.

3) I just enabled ipv6 unicast-routing. Will see what happens.

4) I can always ping other hosts on the network. This is a router issue

5) I had this issue with IOS15 as well. This is what prompted me to figure that IOS15 was buggy, but I've got the same issue in 12.4

6) In the time that I've typed this, I've noticed I've received a lot of link-local RA debug messages. Is this normal? Here's a sample:

Re: IPv6 on Cisco 877 and clients - strange intermittent connectivity
« Reply #28 on: March 14, 2010, 08:12:42 PM »

From looking at the logs, it looks like ND is actually working.  At least the router is sending NS requests and getting NA replies from at least one host on your global IPv6.

I'm not sure what's going on at this point.  May want to turn on more debugging.  It could just be a bug in multiple versions of IOS on that hardware.  May want to put a TAC call in to Cisco or something.

Hmmm.

I know for certain it worked about 2 years ago at a different house. Same router. Now, the main things that would have been different then would be 1) IOS version (probably on 12.3 back then) and 2) client OS and network topology. I've got two theories. Either there's a bug in the router that manifests itself in 15 and 12.4. Or, there's a conflict between something new on the network and the router - obvious candidate is Windows 7.

I'll run it with the above changes for a while and then may roll back to either 12.2 or 12.3 and see if that resolves the issue.
