Route IPv6 through DigitalOcean VPN Server
I set up a Server, which will I use mostly as “US” gateway ;)
On Server Side, I have two interfaces. eth0 & tapsoft.
eth0 has the given IPv6 address 2604:[…]:8001.
I set manual to tapsoft the address: 2604:[…]:8002.
I also set manual the client-IP to 2604:[…]:8003.
The VPN is Layer2 based and I can ping 2604:[…]:8002 from my client, but ether 2604:[…]:8001 or any public ipv6 addresslike google (tried 8001 and 8002 as gateway)
I have enabled “net.ipv6.conf.all.forwarding=1” in sysctl.conf.
I think the problem is the “step” from the tap-device to eth0. For IPv4 I use iptables and SNAT. But I don’t want to nat ipv6, if I have enough addresses. (and yes, 16 addresses are enough for me^^)
Any Ideas or even better: solutions? Thanks
