ipv6 routing


I have a somewhat strange problem that i am going to guess is very easy to solve.

i have installed ipv6 in my kernel, everything appears to be working correct. In addition i setup an account with freenet6 and installed the software with apt-get.

i also installed radvd via the same method and i *think* i setup the conf file correctly, i can ping the linux server from the xp box and vice versa.

here is the problem, whenever i attempt to visit an ipv6 enabled website from my xp machine it times out. I can do a ping or ping6 in a cmd window to GET the correct ipv6 address for sites such as 6bone.net and kame.net but it will never connect and all the ping packets get lost. Therefore i think that something isn't routing the packets properly. any ideas?
and yes packet forwarding is enabled in /proc/sys/blahblah

if you want any other details let me know and i will post them.

Hi,

do you have a line like
Code:
net/ipv6/conf/ethX/forwarding=1
(X is your interface's number)
in the /etc/sysctl.conf file, because if you just change the value in /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/ethX/forwarding to 1 and save this file, the value comes back to 0 when you restart your network service.
I hope it could help you, it was the problem I had
