I would like to use IPv6 on my LAN and would like to be able to go out to the WAN as well. My network is a classic IPv4 environment. It works well.
My ISP provides Global Unicast IPv6 address on the WAN interface of my router (pfsense 2.5.2). I can ping google's IPv6 address from my router:
PING6(56=40+8+8 bytes) <my-global-unicast-iv6-address> --> 2a00:1450:400d:806::200e 16 bytes from 2a00:1450:400d:806::200e, icmp_seq=0 hlim=118 time=17.492 ms 16 bytes from 2a00:1450:400d:806::200e, icmp_seq=1 hlim=118 time=12.482 ms 16 bytes from 2a00:1450:400d:806::200e, icmp_seq=2 hlim=118 time=12.134 ms 16 bytes from 2a00:1450:400d:806::200e, icmp_seq=3 hlim=118 time=11.707 ms 16 bytes from 2a00:1450:400d:806::200e, icmp_seq=4 hlim=118 time=21.414 ms --- 2a00:1450:400d:806::200e ping6 statistics --- 5 packets transmitted, 5 packets received, 0.0% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max/std-dev = 11.707/15.046/21.414/3.814 ms
Behind the router the same thing does not work. I cannot ping google's IPv6 address. I need help to configure the LAN side properly.
May I ask your assistance please ?
EDIT: I had a call with my ISP and confirmed that ping might not work from my LAN. Maybe the the contact was not the right person to answer all my question because he answered that he does not know why but ping should not work but everything else should. Weird.
