RFC 6296 Support (IP6-IP6 Npt)

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

The title says it all.  This is needed to be able to use ipv6 in a dual WAN scenario.

In our company we use two wans in loadbalancing mode. We would love to have that with ipv6, too.

NPTv6 would be helpful for me as a SOHO user with a "sticky" v6 prefix (It doesn't change unless my modem changes, but it CAN change) so that I can use ULA on my local stuff to prevent everything from breaking in the event of a change, and that's only one of many potential scenarios where it would be helpful. Please consider this, Ubiquiti. It's already in VyOS.

Yes, yes, yes. Ubnt Banana

This would be nice indeed have dynamic ipv6 here although lease time should be 7 days after a hour in use it still could change.

Yes please Ubnt Banana

I agree this !


Should be an addition to IPv6 Policy Based Routing as discussed here :

Yes! Please implement this, I find that in general IPv6 could use a lot of love in EdgeOS!

Otherwise I am impressed with my EdgeSwitch and even got a EdgeRouter X to play with but things like this missing feature are preventing me from swapping out my existing routers.

Having concluded that NPT is basically required if you want to multihome without BGP, I'm in for this request as well. Down with ipv6 "nat is evil" purists.

This isn't especially difficult either, I was able to get this setup manually with some scripts and ip6tables.  Good source document here: https://blog.altimos.de/2016/11/isolating-your-home-ipv6-network-with-nptv6-on-edgerouter-lite/

This would be aspecially helpfull to enshure everyone is going thought my DNS or timeserver.

Not having this feature is kind of a security gap.
