Configuring an IPv6 DSL connection

January 19th, 2011 by

The German company rh-tec offers free IPv6 internet connections for people that already have T-DSL. Configuring such a connection on openSUSE 11.3 is not as straight forward as with IPv4. It’s not hard either if you know where to put the settings though.

  1. start the yast2 DSL module
  2. follow the instructions of the wizard to set up a new PPPoE device. Enter your user name and password at the provider screen.
  3. At the “Connection Parameters” screen uncheck “Automatically Retrieve DNS”. Enter an arbitrary IPv4 address as first DNS server (yast doesn’t accept IPv6 there yet, bug 665516).
  4. finish the wizard and leave yast
  5. open /etc/sysconfig/network/providers/provider0 (or whatever name was chosen by yast) in an editor
  6. change DNS1 and DNS2 to the actual IPv6 addresses of your provider’s name servers
  7. add the following line to the file:
    PPPD_OPTIONS="noip +ipv6 ipv6cp-accept-local"
  8. save and quit
  9. Done! You may now use cinternet or qinternet to dial in and enjoy the (rather empty) IPv6 internet.
