IPv6 in Cyprus

I plugged a FireBrick in to the Thomson DSL router in a villa in cyprus, and it got PPP and a prefix delegation for IPv6!

This means the Thomson had switched to bridged mode for PPPoE automatically, which is quite impressive.

It then killed the internet on the Thomson, and stopped working. It seems that it kept closing the connection once opened, and LCP term. However, a bit of experimentation found that this was because I was requesting IPv6 prefix delegations for three LANs. Drop to only one LAN and bingo, it connects and stays connected.

What is interesting is that they actually ask for IPv6CP first even - they are offering IPv6. I get a prefix of 2a00:1358:e0f8:af00::/64

I was about to be impressed, until I found that the IPv6 does not actually work. It looks like an announced prefix and looks like it may even get close coming from outside (right ball park response times on last hop), but not actually getting down the DSL line. So close!

Anyway, time to set up IPsec and some real IPs.

  1. Try and get a local PAYG 3G sim and use that, travelling around Sri Lanka recently that was faster than most of the wifi connections!
