Moving to ipv6. I have a router that’s sending out RA messages and the local SUSE interface (eth0) is generating ipv6 addresses locally with the firewall set to Trusted for the interface. All as expected. I can ping with the -6 option external addresses like www.google.com.

Moving to a custom firewall configuration and rebooting I don’t get any local ipv6 addresses other that the Unicast (I think I have the right term here) address, beginning fe80:.... I can no longer ping external addresses. I presume I need open a service. So far tried dhcpv6-client but no luck.

To check addresses i have been using:

Code:
ip -6 address
Any ideas or suggestions?
