With prefix delegation you have a static prefix on your inside, but the "wan" interface on the router is using DHCP.

So the attempts with /56 and /60 were part of my hundreds of different combinations/attempts to get this to work. I have one /56 assigned to me (2603:xxxx:xxxx:8700::/56) with one gateway assigned to me (2603:xxxx:xxxx:8700:7454:7dff:feb1:d391). Skipping the WAN for just a second because I believe(d) it to need different configuration, I expected to be able to break that /56 up into /64s and use them like so:

So, I ended up handling my IPv4 addresses using 1:1 NAT. It works, and I don't love it, but I think it's the best it's going to get with Comcast's clunky static IP infrastructure. But I'm having no luck with IPv6, and could really use some help with someone who understand's static IPv6 and VyOS a little better. I have a static IPv6 prefix, and I need to statically assign some of those to public-facing servers behind my firewall/router, but it's like pulling teeth from a rhinoceros.

beamerblvd added a comment to T422: Packages server and downloads should be available via HTTPS.

That's true, I would use a TLS mirror with a SHA-256 hash from the master. But I'd also want the master to be TLS.

beamerblvd added a comment to T422: Packages server and downloads should be available via HTTPS.

We should probably put in the mirror documentation that new mirrors must support TLS and existing mirrors are strongly urged to add support for TLS. However, to be clear, wanting a secure source for my downloads, I won't download from a mirror, because there's a lower level of trust. In fact, given a mirror with TLS and a the master source without TLS, I would chose the master source every time.

beamerblvd added a comment to T421: VyOS lacks DHCPv6-PD (Prefix delegation) length / IA_PD support.

So, one thing to note: Comcast doesn't give you a /64 at the very beginning (I didn't understand this fully at the time this was originally reported/discussed). It gives you a /128 (one address). You can then ask for a prefix of any size from a /64 to a /60, and it will give it to you. If you don't ask at all, it won't give you anything. If you ask for a prefix, but without a prefix length, it will give you a /64. (I'm not refuting anything said here; just making sure everyone understands how these are assigned.)

beamerblvd added a comment to T35: Add IPv6 firewall network groups.

I'd like to get some clarity on this, if possible. Will VyOS's firewall features just not work at all with IPv6? Or will it work, but you have to use something other than groups? Importantly: Is it still possible for me to secure my network if I enable IPv6?
