I will soon be switching my internet connection to a regional fibre-optic provider.
After a few information meetings and phone calls, I found out that I will generally get an IPv6 address and the IPv4 address will be realised via CGNat.
I have the option to order a native IPv4 address, which is then dynamic but not behind the CGNat.
My question is, if I then plug my IPFire on the RED connection into the media converter of the fibre connection, how will I be able to establish a connection? about the documentation, they wrote:
IPv6 with the following parameters:
- IPv6 configuration: SLAAC according to RFC 4862
- IPv6 Assignment: DHCPv6 according to RFC 3315
- DHCPv6 Option: DHCPv6 IAPD
(DHCPv6 Identity Association for Prefix Delegation)
according to RFC 3633
IPv4 with the following parameters:
- IPv4 Assignment: DHCP according to RFC 2131
- IPv4 assignment: PPP according to RFC 1661
(if you have received Internet access data)
Or will the IPv6 range simply continue to be ignored?
Because I urgently need functions like reaching and providing VPN tunnels.
A lot of questions, because the worst-case scenario would be an unhappy wife and a limited internet connection.
