Softether on VPS Local Bridge + IPv6 HOW TO?

Can someone write a Debian guide how to setup Softether on VPS Local Bridge + IPv6?

I like what she said, not what it means.

    Check this out : http://lowendtalk.com/discussion/comment/903498/#Comment_903498

    This is actually my comment on the Adblock in VPN post. It has my config for dnsmasq and softether init file.
    Though it's for tap bridge...

  • There are many guides for Local Bridge + IPv4. But not a single guide for Local Bridge + IPv6? Interesting.

    I like what she said, not what it means.

  • You wanna forward a IPv6 port to v4?

    Socat is amazing for port forwarding v4 to v6 and vise versa

    Different.

  • The question is not clear :D
    If you just wanna connect your IPv6 softether setup, use the dynamic dns they provide. I think they claimed it even works with NAT. So you're good to go.

    If you want to connect IPv4 sites on your IPv6 only VPS, setup a 6to4.

    If you want to have an IPv6 address on your client when you are connected to softether, use my config filed above.
    ...

    Other than that I can't generate any more meanings to that question.
    I know, I should've slept...

    This guide Local Bridge + IPv4. I want Local Bridge + IPv6.

  • Sooooo..

    Did you even check my config files?
    I do use Softether with tap_softether bridge and IPv4 (10.0.0.0 network) AND IPv6 (HE.net tunnel)

  • Ok...

    I give up.
    I tried installing Softether on a LES machine.
    This is my first time using a NAT IPv4 machine.

    I connected,
    Installed Softether and Dnsmasq.
    Edited iptables and sysctl for routing rules.

    Then connected to VPN by the external IPv4 and the IPv6 I had.

    No problem till now.
    It connects to the Internet just OK.
    But it is using the host machine's IP Address.

    I tried to make IPv6 also work but I couldn't succeed.
    Nor could I setup a Hurricane Electric IPv6 tunnel. Though the same tunnel setup was working on my old OpenVZ vps and yes, I had Tun/Tap enabled.
    I remember why I don't like OpenVZ.

    So in summary,
    Softether ran on a IPv6 only VPS but uses only the IPv4. Or I was lacking the necessary knowledge to set it up.

    If you want though I can guide you through how to setup and connect to it even if it's only IPv4...

    Same thing. I thought I'm crazy. I have tried like 10 diff ways (fresh install every time).

    Like I said before. I know how to do:

    Local Bridge + IPv4

    SecureNAT + IPv4

    SecureNAT + IPv6


    I DON'T know how to do:

    Local Bridge + IPv6

    I like what she said, not what it means.

  • Well, as long as it has NAT IPv4 and has a working external IPv4, I did manage to get it work...

    But not for pure IPv6 ones.
    Well, they might work but I don't have IPv6 without a VPN to start with, so I can't test it.
    Even if they work, they'll only route IPv6 traffic, leaving you without IPv4. So I don't see any profit there.

    But for now,
    Local Bridge + NAT IP + IPv6 works.

    How did you manage to make Softether work on Nat IPV4. I tried but it doesn't work on the specified ports give by lowendspirit. Any help will be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Well, it's no big deal actually.
    I tried to make a tutorial of my own about the matter and it's still a work in progress.
    I still need to add more stuff like how to give all the clients an IPv6 of their own with a Tunnel etc.

    But you better check my current work.

    I'm at SYSCTL Settings.

    When I run sysctl -f.

    I get:

    sysctl: cannot stat /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/tap_softether/accept_ra: No such file or directory

    Everything else is accept.

    I don’t plan on using IPv6.

    That's because your tap interface is named soft, change that entry to

    tap_soft
    and you're good to go.
    Or remove any ipv6 references from all.

    I tried softether localbridge + ipv6 on kvm vps at aruba cloud. I get ipv6 fine, but I can't ping using tap_softether interface via command: ping6 -I tap_softether ipv6.google.com

    [email protected]:~# ping6 -I tap_softether 2620:0:ccc::2
    connect: Network is unreachable

    Strangely, using dnsmasq ipv6 config (/etc/resolv.conf is 127.0.0.1), it choose to ping ipv4 instead of ipv6

    [email protected]:~# host ipv6.google.com
    ipv6.google.com is an alias for ipv6.l.google.com.
    ipv6.l.google.com has IPv6 address 2a00:1450:400c:c04::64
    [email protected]:~# ping6 ipv6.google.com
    PING ipv6.google.com(wk-in-x64.1e100.net) 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from wk-in-x64.1e100.net: icmp_seq=1 ttl=48 time=7.15 ms
    64 bytes from wk-in-x64.1e100.net: icmp_seq=2 ttl=48 time=7.12 ms

    my he.net tunnelbroker is working fine

    [email protected]:~# ping6 2620:0:ccc::2
    PING 2620:0:ccc::2(2620:0:ccc::2) 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from 2620:0:ccc::2: icmp_seq=1 ttl=60 time=2.06 ms
    64 bytes from 2620:0:ccc::2: icmp_seq=2 ttl=60 time=2.73 ms
    64 bytes from 2620:0:ccc::2: icmp_seq=3 ttl=60 time=1.95 ms
    64 bytes from 2620:0:ccc::2: icmp_seq=4 ttl=60 time=2.01 ms

    but without ipv6 dns resolv of course.
