I currently pay for Gigabit service from Comcast Residential. This is handled by a pfSense appliance.
There are two problems:
(1) I am not getting an IPv6 address from Comcast.
(2) I am not getting a /64 prefix
From everything I have found, I should be able to get a /64 prefix to assign IPv6 addresses to individual devices behind my pfSense. However, I am unable to do so, nor am I able to get an IPv6 address on my WAN port just for my pfSense box even (NAT6 therefore isn't an option either).
Is there anything I can do to troubleshoot this on my end, or do I have to go through chat with a tech to solve this problem?
See if anything here helps;
I'm not paying for gigabit but I do have Comcast and pfsense. I tried /64 and never got it to work. I had to switch to /60 and then everything started working just fine. Below are the settings I have on WAN and a guest network. You can use the guest network settings on your LAN, just make the prefix ID different for each interface.
You mentioned NAT6, I dont think pfsense supports that but I'm no expert and havent looked into it.
I did manage to get NAT6 working on Sense, but not with the GUI, it was a nasty piece of work, but isn't good long-term.
I'll emulate your v6 settings when I'm home after work and see if I can get it working. If I can then I can enjoy v6 connectivity, if not, I"ll be back.
I also have a ruleset permitting all v6 at the moment so there's nothing *blocking* v6 currently...
Will report back; sorry for the slow response times, I was travelling a bit.
This worked. Turns out however I had an errant rule in my system blocking v6 ICMP on the WAN interface.
I fixed that by opening WAN ICMPv6 inbound to the WAN and it seemed to work.
Glad you got it figured out !
