IPv6 Ping not working...

Postby DonGould » 23. Aug 2010, 06:16

I can't ping using IPv6...

8383:1::ffff-eth1-Centos4/CC3.2 <--> 8383:1::1-VistaLaptop(Host) <-->8383:1::2(Debian5-VMClient-running on 8383:1::1-VistaLaptop)

I can ping 8383:1::1-->8383:1::2 (Host Client)
I can ping 8383:1::2-->8383:1::1 (Client Host)
I can ping 8383:1::1-->8383:1::ffff (Host Gateway)
I can ping 8383:1::ffff-->8383:1::1 (Gateway Host)

I can NOT ping 8383:1::2-->8383:1::ffff (Client Gateway)
I can NOT ping 8383:1::ffff-->8383:1::2 (Gateway Host)

I can ping 192.168.2.1-->192.168.2.101 (gateway to vmclient on IPv4)

I'm using bridged mode on the wifi adaptor on my laptop (running vista)

Cheers Don

Hello I recently installed VB3.2.8 on my Mac mini. I have Redhat, FreeBSD, Vista, and 7 all running. I cannot ping over IPv6 at all, however, I see to be IPv6 enabled. All my interfaces are auto-configured so I know I am seeing router advertisements. I found this post from a couple of years ago:

http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/2975

Does anyone know if this fix is in the latest build of 3.2.8?

@jjmb,
Are you using a wireless adapter?
See Chapter 6.4. Bridged networking in your VirtualBox users guide.
Also remember that even if your guest, host, and router support IPv6 you provider must as well unless you use an IPV6 gateway (tunnel)

I can say with 1000% certainty that VirtualBox is 100% IPv6 capable when you use Bridged networking. I had a whole project running with IPv6 where the router advertisement, DNS and gateway were all hosted from a VM. If you cannot ping or otherwise contact other IPv6 addresses, you have to check your configuration. There is a mistake somewhere, it's not a VB side issue.

Looks like VirtualBox is only 50% IPv6 capable with bridged networking. It works 100% of the time for me on the wired interface and 0% on the wireless interface. The code for wireless bridging has yet to be written as of VB 4.1.0. This is currently documented at http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch06.html#idp12173808, but only for Mac & Linux. It is a problem for wireless on all platforms.

I can confirm that IPv6 over bridged wireless is still not working in VB 4.1.2 on XP host.
Anyone know plans for when when wireless bridging will be supported?

Sorry for the delayed reply, very delayed. I was/am using the wireless adapter.
