I have been happily using verizon service for broadband wireless for some years now, under Linux.
I now have a usb 727 device now.
With ipv4 it is working great, but I want to enable ipv6 on it.
I already have ipv6 for my home network/wifi/nic setup, now I would like it also on my cellular broadband.
I called Verizon support and they indicated that the network is currently supporting it, and I only needed to setup my computer to support it.
So where (in my ppp options?) would I make a modification to tell the device to get an ipv6 address now?
Here are the files I have:
connect ‘/usr/sbin/chat -v -t3 -f /etc/ppp/peers/1xevdo_chat’
ABORT ‘NO CARRIER’ ABORT ‘ERROR’ ABORT ‘NO DIALTONE’ ABORT
‘BUSY’ ABORT ‘NO ANSWER’
#First setup /dev/ttyUSB0 and /dev/ttyUSB1
#Then start modprobe:
echo “Starting modprobe for usbserial”
sudo /sbin/modprobe usbserial vendor=0x1410 product=0x1100
echo “finished starting modprobe for usbserial”
echo “Now to start the pppd call”
#Then run pppd startup:
sudo /usr/sbin/pppd call 1xevdo
echo “pppd call completed”
