Ns5gt as DHCPV6 client



  • Hi, I have a Netscreen 5GT and my ISP Comcast has now enabled IPV6 on their network.  When I connect my computer directly to the cable modem, I can do IPV6 dns lookup and ping.

    But with the 5GT, it does not seem to route IPV6 request. I have enable IPV6 on all the interfaces and added DCHPV6 client. And IPV4 NAT work fine.

    Does anybody knows what else need to be done ?

    Thanks.



  • It’s a bit tricky (thanks to the Prefix Delegation IAPD piece that I kept missing).  I posted the working configuration screen shots at http://kevpeterson.com/comcast-ipv6/.



  • I have an NS5GT running 6.2.0r12.0. There is no apparent capability for DHCPv6 Client support (though it can serve it).

    I too just got Comcast w/ IPv6 (/128 for now… grrr) and tried to revive this old box 🙂

    If anybody has information on any Netscreen (including SSG) devices that can do this, please advise. My ZyXel is stepping in for now.

    Thanks!
