ping6 does not work when trying to connect from WAN

Hi,

 

I have just setup Motorola MG7700. I have DyDNS so that I can run a web server. I can :

 

on LAN

 

1) ping6 <my WAN ipv6 address>

2) ping <my WAN ipv4 address>

I can do both (1) and (2) againt host name (so it resolves to proper IP)

 

On WAN:

1) ping6 <my WAN ipv6 address/host name> DOES NOT WORK

2) ping <WAN ipv4 address/host name> works fine

 

I am not that experienced in debugging ipv6. What could be the issue?

 

Thank you very much

Re: ping6 does not work when trying to connect from WAN

I hope your example means this;

C:\Windows\system32>ping bing.com -6 -n 1

Other than that try;

C:\Windows\system32>ipconfig

*works in powershell exactly

What is happening?

Most likely one of your firewalls is blocking the incoming connection.

The firewall does not come comepletly preconfigured.

You want to try to open secure connections to host and client.

Make sure the host is the one that's configured first.

This includes router firewalls. Unless you are willing to turn that off. Most businesses do turn that off because routers may have a limited amout of keywords to add.

And check these pings from client computers. You may be just locked debugging on a local network.

Re: ping6 does not work when trying to connect from WAN

Here is an example from the firewall.

Remote port. Different from local port. And you may want to allow any port.

In advanced security configuration your timer can forward all ports to a single local port that will be monitored exclusively.

Examples;

all remote ports are just open.

router remote ports are all open and just forward to a single local port.

For example; here is a very unsecure website.

This will required advanced option to continue to site

This site is not in any way actually malicious.

This site only opens in Internet Explorer 11.572.19041.0 at least.
