    Default IPv6 failing to connect

    Thought I would play around with IPv6. I found a tutorial for setting it up on Backtrack right here in the forum. Followed it as best I could even though gogo has renamed some things in their latest packages. (Mostly just file names) I thought I had everything perfect, but the video goes pretty fast. Still I get this error when I try to connect to the freenet server:

    Code:
    # ./gogoc -f gogoc.conf

    I played around with some different servers to connect to. Also tried some different interface switches and double/triple checked the video. Any advice?

    Does your ISP provide you with IPv6 support ? I know mine doesn't yet... So that might explain why you can't connect
    Running both KDE and GNOME BT5 flawlessly. Thank you !

    I bet he's trying to use a 4to6 tunnel service. I'm trying to enable the IPv6 stack to do some link local scanning from BT but I can't get it to work.

    @TS: Did you enable the v6 stack and if so, how did you do it?
    ifconfig eth0 | grep inet6

    Do you get a link-local address? If not, I don't think you have IPv6 enabled. The video doesn't show how to enable it, I don't think it's enabled by default on Backtrack due to security reasons.

    Yeah, I don't know if my ISP supports it or not. So I was trying the tunnel over ipv4. I understood that was the whole point of the gogo software.

    @TS: Did you enable the v6 stack and if so, how did you do it?
    ifconfig eth0 | grep inet6
    Code:
    # ifconfig wlan0 | grep inet6
              inet6 addr: fe80::223:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx/64 Scope:Link
    Yeah, I enabled it with "modprobe ipv6".
    Code:
    # lsmod | grep "ipv6"
    ipv6                  215277  10
    Do you get a link-local address? If not, I don't think you have IPv6 enabled. The video doesn't show how to enable it, I don't think it's enabled by default on Backtrack due to security reasons.
    Looks link-local to me. fe80:: prefix

    Don't know if this would be of any help to you or not, but when I was going through the HE.net IPv6 certification, I had to take my WRT54G out of the equation, in order to complete the 6to4 tunnel.

    Like I said, I don't know if that will help you. I don't know how your network is setup. And, of course, connecting to a network in this fashion is a pretty major security risk. Going through that cert, I would configure my network, do what I had to do, and put things back the way they were as quickly as possible, once done.
