I'm trying to setup my openvz containers to use a veth interface.

I have veth1.0 on the host node and I see eth0 in the vz. but when I do:

ip -6 route add 2001:249a:aaa1:0000:0000:0000:0001:0001/112 dev veth1.0

on the host node and i type

ping6 2001:249a:aaa1:0000:0000:0000:0001:0001

it doesn't ping??

Have you assigned 2001:249a:aaa1::1:1 to any interface? Just having a route to the /112 prefix doesn't magically assign the address to an interface. And where are you pinging from? – Steven Monday Jan 28 '11 at 15:40

Enable IPv6 forwarding:

cat 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/eth0/forwarding

I've done that but it doesn't assign a full /112?? – Daniel Jan 28 '11 at 8:43
Shouldn't that be echo 1? – Léo Lam Sep 14 '14 at 11:53
