ShowIP

One useful browser add-on I've come across is called "ShowIP".  It displays the IP address for the web site you're viewing, whether IPv4 or IPv6.  It's available for Firefox, Seamonkey and Chrome…Continue

Subnet address changes again

I had problems with IPv6 again yesterday. It appears my subnet address was changed again.  I find this very annoying, as I have to reconfigure my firewall and also update the DNS server with the new…Continue

gogoClient on Linux and DNS

I have a Linux based firewall where I run the gogoClient.  One thing I've noticed is that if the tunnel is down, that computer will not connect to a DNS server.  I have 2 DNS servers, with IPv6…Continue

Installing gogoCLIENT on Linux

After a fair bit of installing the client on different versions of Linux, I've created a list of things required to successfully install it.  These work as of today.  If I find further fixes needed,…Continue

"That might be a temporary problem with the server.  Is it still failing?  What server are you configured for? "

"One thought.  You mentioned it works in Windows.  Are you trying to run it on both at the same time?  With an authenticated account, you're assigned static addresses and you can't have them assigned to more than one device."

"I don't think you can use the anonymous site for subnets.  Use one of the regular ones.  I use montreal.freenet6.net, but there are others. "

ShowIP

One useful browser add-on I've come across is called "ShowIP".  It displays the IP address for the web site you're viewing, whether IPv4 or IPv6.  It's available for Firefox, Seamonkey and Chrome browsers.  I don't know about others.  With ShowIP, you can tell at a glance whether the site is on IPv6 or IPv4.See More

"You appear to already have an IPv6 address.  It's 2001:5c0:1400:a::1e3.  I can even ping it.  Try pinging ipv6.google.com to see what happens.  You can also go to http://test-ipv6.com to see what it says about your…"

"That's not the case in Canada, certainly not on Rogers.  Also, it would be handy to have the client on tablets connected to networks where IPv6 is not available. I get IPv6 on my phone and tablet only when they're connected to my…"

"No, one physical interface to your LAN should be all that's necessary.  The tun interface brings the IPv6 subnet to your computer.  You should also have RADVD running to advertise the IPv6 prefix to your network.  You can use…"

"If everything is working properly, local IPv6 addresses should appear automagically on all the relevant interfaces.  On my firewall computer, I have the sit1 on the interface connected to the cable modem and an address on my subnet on the NIC…"

James Knott replied to Wesley Santos's discussion 'userid & password for Freenet6'
"When you get that address, can you ping6 an IPv6 only site, such as ipv6.google.com? When I run ifconfig, I see a "sit1" tunnel for 6in4.  I assume you have one of those."

James Knott replied to Wesley Santos's discussion 'userid & password for Freenet6'
"What server are you using?  I use montreal.freenet6.net.  IIRC, with authenticate accounts, you have to chose the appropriate site and use only it, though I could be wrong on that.  The server authenticated.freenet6.net doesn't…"

"The advantages of an authenticated connection are a static IP and also a subnet is available.  If neither of those are important to you, you're fine.  I have an authenticated account, which allows me to run an IPv6 subnet on my home…"

Sybex Cisco Certified Network Associate book. Wait before buying

I have been studying this book with the intent of obtaining Cisco CCNA certification.  However, I noticed several errors in the chapter on IPv6.  I have been in contact with the author about this and he said he will be updating that chapter to correct the errors I pointed out.  I have the Deluxe Edition, 6th edition, revised and updated for 2011, but I believe the errors may also be in the 7th edition.  So, if it's on the shelf now, it will likely contain those errors.  Wait for one with a…

Good IPv6 reference book

I have noticed that many problems people experience are due to not understanding IPv6 and how it differs from IPv4.  There is one book that contains a lot of useful IPv6 information.  It is IPv6 Essentials, by Sylvia Hagen and published by O'Reilly.  It's available in both paper and e-book versions.  What's nice about the e-book version is purchasers are entitled to free updates.  I refer to this book…

IPv6 port scan site

I don't recall if I mentioned this before, but there's an IPv6 port scan site, which you can use to check your firewall on IPv6.
