Internode released a trial of native IPv6 over ADSL a few months back, so anyone with an ADSL account with them can try it.
So one of my clients has an SSG5 and an internode connection so I thought I'd set it up.
So the setup:
The very first step is to enable IPv6 on the SSG5, this requires you to run the following command and then restart/reboot the device:
Once done you should now have access to all the IPv6 functions in the WebUI.
The next step is to modify your PPPoE connection settings.
set pppoe name "Internode" username "email@example.com" password "encryptedpassword"
set pppoe name "Internode" ppp ipv6cp ipcp
Now you need to enable IPv6 on the interface that the PPPoE connection is setup on.
set interface "ethernet0/0" ipv6 mode "host"
set interface "ethernet0/0" ipv6 enable
set interface ethernet0/0 ipv6 ra accept
unset interface ethernet0/0 ipv6 nd nud
So the above should be enough for you to get the /64 on the PPPoE interface.
Internode is currently handing out a /60 for use in your network (via DHCPv6), so lets now set that up.
set interface ethernet0/0 dhcp6 client
set interface ethernet0/0 dhcp6 client options rapid-commit
set interface ethernet0/0 dhcp6 client options request pd
set interface ethernet0/0 dhcp6 client pd ra-interface bgroup0
set interface ethernet0/0 dhcp6 client enable
In the above "bgroup0" is my LAN interface.
Now let's get IPv6 running on "bgroup0"
set interface "bgroup0" ipv6 mode "router"
set interface "bgroup0" ipv6 ip 2001:44b8:7763:baa0::1/64
set interface "bgroup0" ipv6 enable
set interface bgroup0 ipv6 ra link-address
set interface bgroup0 ipv6 ra transmit
unset interface bgroup0 ipv6 nd nud
In the above the IPv6 address there is my first /64 out of the /60, I've manually set it to a :1 address but you can use whatever it's default auto assigned address is.
Now you might want to hand out internodes IPv6 DNS server addresses to your LAN
set interface bgroup0 dhcp6 server
set interface bgroup0 dhcp6 server options dns dns1 2001:44b8:1::6
set interface bgroup0 dhcp6 server options dns dns2 2001:44b8:2::6
set interface bgroup0 dhcp6 server enable
Now we need to setup the default IPv6 route, as the one that is added by default is incorrect.
set route ::/0 interface ethernet0/0 gateway ::
And finally the IPv6 policy to allow traffic out (yay no NAT).
set policy id 12 from "Trust" to "Untrust" "Any-IPv6" "Any-IPv6" "ANY" permit log
That should be all you need to do to get IPv6 working on your network.
There is more information over at the internode site if needed.
And here is a traceroute from a computer on the LAN

anyone had any issues with IPv6 PPPoE on a NS5GT running 6.2. Ive set up all the commands as per above but nothing appears to happens. Nothing found in the ppp debugs. (??)1: Comment Link
I take it you're with internode? Can you send me your configuration via the contact form?
Hi did you succeed to set this up? I am trying to connect with PPPoE as well and would like to know if there is a silver bullet..
Thanks in advance3: Comment Link
What problems are you having? ScreenOS 6.3 seems to have fixed most of the IPv6 issues but you cannot get it on the Netscreen 5GT, only the newer SSG5.4: Comment Link
Another SSG user here, great doco - All worked with 6.3.0r6.
You have any SRX's that you use PPPoE and Internode with? I can not get PPPoE up and running with JunOS but works fine with ScreenOS ... :(
May be a bug with PPPoE on JunOS (prob a setting tho ... I have even had JTAC assist me and still no go ....)5: Comment Link
Yeah PPPoE works fine on the SRX but that is about it. IPv6 only works in packet mode. I've decided that the SRX is a shit product so yeah get something else :p
Na it isn't thhaaaaat bad but for the cost it should be much better. Email me your config and I'll have a look.6: Comment Link
