      Opnsense IPV6 setup guide for VDSL?

      I am in the next few days going to be switching from Plusnet over to Now Broadbands fibre service and I am wanting to use my own custom quadcore opnsense router with this as opposed to the Q box.

      Is there any specific guides existing on setting up the Opnsense router to work with Now Broadband to get a IPv6 connection.

      I will be using the Opnsense router with a Zyxel modem in bridge mode.

      Thanks for any help in advance.

      there are settings yes. I already use it. pretty straight forward.
      ipv6 works just fine.
      go with the latest downloadable release and I can help you with the config if required.

      I did an opnsense wiki for Zen, https://wiki.opnsense.org/manual/how...Pv6_ZenUK.html , guess I should do one for Sky too.

      Yes please, as from what I have read Sky uses a strange setup where you need to use DHCP and OPTN 61 to get an internet access. And I am not sure what you need to do ontoip of this to get IPv6.

      So if you have your basic config settings you have in place on the Opnsense router to get IPv6 would be of massive help.

      It describes how to make it work with Sky, AFAIA they are the same.

      I have posted the doc on my server for now, as it may take a day or two to work its way through the Opnsense system. In the meantime you can get the relevant information here:

      That looks absolutely perfect. I had been off and on checking the wiki to see when it would come live. Thanks for posting it elsewhere also to speed everything up. Have took a printout of the webpage now

      The switch over for me is Monday 16th so will go through this guide then.

      Thanks again.
