i bought a Dell Powerconnect 6248P router for my company network and with hindsight its too complicated for my needs.
but - i have a problem that needs sorting.
i have configured ipv6 DHCP on my Windows Server 2008 R2 server (Stateless Mode)
the scope is fc00:1234:5678:9abc::/64
all my client machines get ip6 addresses allocated by the DHCP server.
When i try to ping an ip6 address from a computer that has been allocated its ip6 address from the DHCP server i get the following error: "PING: transmit failed. General failure."
When I manually configure the ip6 address PINK works fine.
the problem is that i need to configure the ip6 routing information on the switch as this cannot be done via the ip6 DHCP server as i understand it. (on ip4 DHCP server you configure the gateway)
i have been referring to this article: http://www.networkworld.com/community/blog/setting-dhcpv6-dynamically-issue-ipv6-address
"a) If your routers are setup to support IPv6 with the otherconfig=true , effectively that your router is configured to tell your IPv6 clients their routing information, then choose to Enable DHCPv6 Stateless Mode, click Next "
on a Dell PowerConnect 6248P how do i put this routing information in?
i have access to the web management interface, and the firmware version is 184.108.40.206.
i also have CLI access.
I have not configured any vlan's. there is only vlan1 that is configured when you run thought the Easy Configuration Wizard on the router.
any help would be most appreciated. if there is any documeantion with worked examples and step-by-step guides it would be amazing,
thanks for yoru help
