8800NL R2 2.52.d15 IPv6 Tunnel not working

Post by Pete-B » Wed Aug 07, 2019 9:23 am

8800NL R2 firmware upgraded from 2.52.d12 to 2.52.d15.
I have an IPv6inIPv4 tunnel set up with Hurricane Electric, this stopped working. I used test-ipv6.com to check.
The tunnel was then deleted and re-created, it was still not working.

I downgraded from 2.52.d15 to 2.52.d12, keeping the current configuration, the IPv6 tunnel is working again.

HI Pete

Can you email me a copy of your config (support@billion.uk.com) with the password set back admin, so our engineers can investigate.

If it's of any help, at least for some confirmation
I have a 8800AXL R2 running firmware 2.52 d15 (Not the NL version but I believe it's the same firmware)
and my Hurricane Electric IPv6inIPv4 tunnel is working OK
Output from test-ipv6.com :-

Test with IPv4 DNS record ok (0.071s) using ipv4
Test with IPv6 DNS record ok (0.096s) using ipv6
Test with Dual Stack DNS record ok (0.091s) using ipv6
Test for Dual Stack DNS and large packet ok (0.044s) using ipv6
Test IPv4 without DNS ok (0.048s) using ipv4
Test IPv6 without DNS ok (0.063s) using ipv6
Test IPv6 large packet ok (0.075s) using ipv6
Test if your ISP's DNS server uses IPv6 ok (0.093s) using ipv6

The config is as detailed in the file "ETEC_88xx IPv6inIPv4 Tunnel SOP.pdf"
