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.
- start the yast2 DSL module
- follow the instructions of the wizard to set up a new PPPoE device. Enter your user name and password at the provider screen.
- 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).
- finish the wizard and leave yast
- open /etc/sysconfig/network/providers/provider0 (or whatever name was chosen by yast) in an editor
- change DNS1 and DNS2 to the actual IPv6 addresses of your provider’s name servers
- add the following line to the file:
PPPD_OPTIONS="noip +ipv6 ipv6cp-accept-local"
- save and quit
- Done! You may now use cinternet or qinternet to dial in and enjoy the (rather empty) IPv6 internet.
