Configuring ipv6 on Business Broadband with 5 static ipv4 addresses

Go to solution

Years of frustration with not having ipv6 for business broadband and not hearing any announcements finally turned to hope when I flicked a setting on my Draytek and found I could get an ipv6 connection. But....

It doesn't work. 

By setting my Draytek 2860 to use ipv6 wan via ppp I do get a connection. With just one ipv6 address (duh!!! how useless is that?). But it doesn't respond to pings from inside my network and checking http://test-ipv6.com/ reveals that it's not communicating with the outside world either. 

So what do I need to do to get ipv6 working? How do I get static ipv6 ips with a decent network range for internal use? I have 5 static ipv4 addresses. Where can I find which static ipv6 addresses have been assigned to me?

There's zero information available from BT on this. I get the impression that the ipv6 rollout team inside BT are locked in a dungeon and not allowed to talk to anyone, not even the technical help staff or web site admins.
