#12219 closed enhancement (worksforme)

Enable and pre-configure IPv6 by default

Reported by: renne Owned by: developers
Priority: high Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: base system Version: Trunk
Keywords: IPv6 enable pre-configure default Cc: renne.bartsch@…


The IANA-IPv4-address-pool ran out in February, the RIRs will run out of IPv4-addresses in one or two month.

Here in Germany, our cable-providers ('Unitymedia-KabelBW', 8% market-share and 'Kabel Deutschland', 6% market-share) have started deploying new internet-sockets with native IPv6 and IPv4 via Dual-Stack-Lite three month ago. Our biggest DSL-provider (Deutsche Telekom AG, 46% market-share) has announced to enable Dual-Stack on all internet-sockets until the end of the year.

At the end of the year 60% of the internet-sockets in Germany (about 16,000,000) will have native IPv6 connectivity.

So I personally think it's time to ship OpenWRT with IPv6 enabled and pre-configured by default.

IPv6 is enabled by default in OpenWrt builds since July 2010. Considering the wide variety of IPv6 provisionning options (6rd, DHCPv6, tunnel brokers), I do not think it makes sense to decide this for users.
