IPv6 with Synology RT2600ac via HE tunnel

2017/12/31

Very quick and dirty steps required to get IPv6 over IPv4 working in your Synology RT2600ac.

Head over to https://tunnelbroker.net and create an account. Create a tunnel service and note down the following details:

IPv6 Tunnel Endpoints

  • Server IPv4 Address
  • Server IPv6 Address
  • Client IPv4 Address
  • Client IPv6 Address
  • Routed IPv6 Prefix

Open the SRM admin page open the “Network Centre” app.

Select “Internet”. Under the “Connection” tab click the “IPv6 setup” button. Select the following settings:

  • IPv6 Setup: 6in4
  • IPv6 Address: {CLIENT IPv6 ADDRESS AS ABOVE}
  • Prefix Length: 64
  • Prefix: {ROUTED IPv6 PREFIX AS ABOVE} You dont need to include the trailing /64. Its already entered for you.
  • Remote server IPv4 address: {SERVER IPv4 ADDRESS AS ABOVE}

Press “Okay”.

Back in the “Network Centre” app, select “Local Network”. Under the “IPv6” tab, tick the box to enable IPv6 and select your “Prefix” from the drop down menu. Press Apply.

Now onto validating and testing.

Back in the “Network Centre” app, click on “Status”. Next to the “Internet Connection” heading, click the little drop down and select IPv6. It should say “Connected”.

Finally, check a client machine in your local network and make sure it has an IPv6 address auto-assigned. From that machine browse to http://ipv6-test.com/

Internode IPv6 up and running

2010/08/12

Tonight I got IPv6 running on my home internet connection. It’s pretty easy to do now that there is some CPE on the market that supports it. Here’s how I did it.

Start with an ISP that rocks. Internode is the only choice. Their IPv6 page will give you useful information.

Get an ADSL router which supports IPv6. The Billion 7800NL is the one you need. Download and upgrade to firmware 2.02a. Be aware that upgrading the firmware will factory reset your modem.

When your 7800NL reboots with the new firmware you will need to re-run its config wizard and setup your ADSL connection and username/password again. Don’t forget to enter your username with the @ipv6.internode.on.net suffix.

That’s all there was to it. Quick, easy, painless. Time will tell how stable it is. Thank you Internode and Billion for allowing the Australian internet to take the next step forward.
