• f1d0 address

    From Morgan Collins@1:218/840 to All on Wed Sep 1 14:51:38 2021

    Hi All,

    Just found a Hub from which I'm able to subscribe to this Echo. I was going to post and request to be added to the ipv6 list, but it appears I've magically been detected and added. Amazing!

    How does one go about getting one of these?

    Has a ::f1d0:<zone>:<net>:<node> style host address.
    (zone, net, node in decimal notation)

    Normally you would have own /64 subnet and may use any address you like.

    It is not magic, it is a script. ;-)

    My fellow sysop, Kees van Eeten has a script dat periodically checks the nodelist for nodes that advertise an IPv6 address in the host name. If he finds new ones, he reports them to me. I attempt to make an IPv6 connect. If it succeeds, I add the node to the list. If it fails, I try to contact the sysop to help solve the problem. Sometimes these attempts are successful, sometimes they are not.

    You have to manually configure it as a fixed address. I see you run Linux, so I can't help you there. I am not famliar with Linux.

    Cheers, Michiel

    Okay. I know just enough about ip6 to be dangerious, but I'm not an expert by any means. I'll do some googling and see what the steps are. I know my host will assign me an ip6 block if I request it.... so that's probably the first step. But I don't want to break anything in the process.

    I'll poke around, and will continute to monitor this echo.

    Glad to be here!

    As you see simply assign the correct address.

    In my /etc/network/interfaces
    iface eth0 inet6 static
    address 2a03:4000:4a:c5f:f1d0:2:310:31/64
    gateway fe80::1

    iface eth0 inet6 static
    address 2a03:4000:4a:c5f::1/64
    gateway fe80::1

    Another way could be.

    iface eth0 inet6 auto
    pre-up ip token set ::f1d0:2:310:31 dev $IFACE

    Simply configure a host part that is in line with that requirement: ricsi@menedetter:~$ nslookup menedetter.net
    Name: menedetter.net
    Address: 2a03:4000:4a:c5f::1

    ricsi@menedetter:~$ nslookup fido.ricsi.priv.at
    Name: fido.ricsi.priv.at
    Address: 2a03:4000:4a:c5f:f1d0:2:310:31

    As you see simply assign the correct address.

    In my /etc/network/interfaces
    iface eth0 inet6 static
    address 2a03:4000:4a:c5f:f1d0:2:310:31/64
    gateway fe80::1

    iface eth0 inet6 static
    address 2a03:4000:4a:c5f::1/64
    gateway fe80::1

    CU, Ricsi
