#547 closed defect (pending)

eduroam SSID does not have IPv6

Reported by: evyncke@… Owned by: bzeeb+ietf@…

Component: wireless Keywords:
Cc: My Current Location: Salon D
My MAC Address: 00:26:bb:10:39:26 My OS: Mac OS/X 10.8.0

Description

While all other IETF SSID have IPv6, eduroam (which I prefer with u141567@…) has only IPv4 and no IPv6 at all

Not critical but it prevents me to use eduroam and revert back to the non-encrypted IETF SSID ;-)

Thanks in advance

It works for me in various places. I get IPv6 addresses, and DHCPv6 responses for DNS on OSX ML.

So I walked back to Salon D and I can confirm that on one access point I did not get a v6 address on eduroam but did get v6 on other APs or other SSIDs including ietf.1x and ietf-a.1x which are both "encrypted SSIDs" as well on the same AP. It's a bit of mystery but we are sometimes seeing problems with multicast on these Cisco APs. It could well be related to CSCtz94159. Unfortunately the working group sessions started so I had to stop poking at the AP locally. If you can internally poke on the bug that would be helpful:) If eduroam+v6 does work nowhere for you please let me know.

Next time, I will hide my employer email address ;-) When I have more time, then I am checking the bug-id of course ;-)

Anyway, now in Grand Ballroom C (int area WG) and I have the same problem (AP is 0:17:df:a2:ae:a0).

And indeed, this morning I always get IPV6 on non-eduroam SSID

Hmm yes, I could see the assoc of your mac address on the AP when I had quickly checked.

Can you check the usual stuff that your v6 is on for when you switch to eduroam, if ndp -rn shows anything or if ping6 ff02::1%<IF> gives you anything but your own address? See if you can ping6 fe80::8:1%<IF>?

Can you see if bouncing your wifi interface (Turn Wifi off/on) makes any change?

Can you ask the person sitting next to you to try to associate with eduroam (even if they do not have credentials) and see if that solves the problem for you (for at least 30 minutes)?

Yes, there is a bit off guesswork involved here but that's basically how far we got debugging what we have seen another time (unrelated to eduroam) we IPv6 and these APs.

And of course, in Salon D (Sunset4 WG) I have IPV6 on eduroam with AP 0:17:df:a2:33:a0 ...

The ping6 -I en1 ff02::1%en1 exhibits probably around 12 other IPv6 hosts on eduroam.

I will continue my testing tomorrow and later today

And, it also works this Tuesday morning... So, let's assume that this was simply a transient issue

comment:7 Changed 5 years ago by bzeeb+ietf@…

Resolution: pending
Status: assignedclosed

Or that there are enough users on eduroam currently. Please report/reopen if it happens again.
