I have some confusion about IPV6 on a Small Business Network. I'm sure one part or the other is covered extensively, but I can't seem to find answers.
- (Background info) I have a home network that uses PFSense/Comcast. PFSense is the DHCP/DNS server and IPV6 RA is set to unmanaged. IPV6 works fine there.
- I have a work setup consisting of:
a. Comcast Business Internet
b. PFSense Firewall/Router
c. Windows 2012R2 AD/DNS/DHCP server.
- IPV6 Windows DHCP/DHCPv6 is enabled at work.
a. Windows DHCPv6 is running and is handing out addresses in the FDC2: range.
b. Computers can use the IPV6 addresses handed to them to "talk" to each other just fine.
c. Of course, All IPV4 functions/NAT are working fine. This is a well established network.
- I enabled IPV6 on the PFSense/Firewall, used the config tutorials and PFSense has WAN and LAN IPV6 addresses in the 2603: range
PFSense can ping IPV6 sites from its own interface.
I have no idea where to go from here to get those 2603 addresses to the local computers so that they can talk to ipv6 sites on the internet. Or, conversely.. if I should.
Do I use the 2603: prefix in Windows DHCP instead of FDC2 ? To me this does not sound correct but .. as I said; I am somewhat lost from here. I am assuming for a machine to talk to a IPV6 WAN, it needs a global address, similar to what it looks like at my house.
