Need some help on ipv6 on dacentec
I have a dacentec server with debian 8 (on which I installed Proxmox), and can't seem to enable ipv6 on it (just ipv6 connection to the host).
I have been trying to set it up for hours without success and dacentec supports can only send me some general URL's but they assured me ipv6 should be working and it is caused by a malconfiguration
This is what I set up (address modified)
I received a /48 address: 1:2:3::1
I set up /etc/network/interfaces as follows:
iface eth0 inet6 static address 1:2:3::2 network 1:2:3::/48 gateway 1:2:3::1
The settings for the network and gateway were 'hinted' by support.
on the server itself
- ping6 1:2:3::2 does respond
- ping6 1:2:3::1 does not repond (network is unreachable)
- ping6 ipv6.google.com does not respond (network is unreachable)
- ping6 1:2:3::1 responds
- ping6 1:2:3::2 does not respond
This is what ip 6 -a tells me:
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 state UNKNOWN qlen 1 inet6 ::1/128 scope host valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever 2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 state UP qlen 1000 inet6 1:2:3::2/128 scope global valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever inet6 fe80::225:90ff:fe10:7810/64 scope link valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
Any help is greatly appreciated !
Also what is your gateway after all,
1:2:3::1? May need to check that as well.
I was told the gateway was 1:2:3::1
I also tried netmask 48. Both, unfortunately, to no avail...
iface etho0 -> iface eth0
Thanks @AutoSnipe, but it was a typo in my message, it was/is correct on the server.
@wlambrechts if you set as shown in the @AutoSnipe's message (and of course restart networking or reboot), can you then ping
1:2:3::1from the server? Paste
ip -6 aagain, and
ip -6 r.
thanks @rm_ and @autosnipe ! You solved my problem !
The correct section is indeed:
iface eth0 inet6 static address 1:2:3::2 netmask 48 gateway 1:2:3::1
I had tried the "netmask" but at the time my gateway was not set up correctly !
