Dutch ISP Telfort introduces IPv6

After conducting an IPv6 pre-pilot (see http://ipv6-or-no-ipv6.blogspot.nl/2012/01/dutch-isp-telfort-conducting-ipv6-pre.html), Dutch ISP pilot Telfort has silently introduced IPv6 for all its DSL (VDSL and ADSL) customers. I don't know about its FttH customers. And mobile customers probably have to wait.

Telfort's IPv6 is opt-in; you have to enable it in your Zyxel modem. This is how:


  • Log in on your Zyxel modem at http://192.168.1.254/ 
  • Go to Network Setting -> Broadband. At the top of that page, check which connection is used: VDSL or ADSL. Then find that entry in the table below, and click on the corresponding "Modify" icon on the far right
  • In the windows that pops up, at "IPv6/IPv4 DualStack" click enable. More below, enable "6to4 Tunneling" and check "6RD Enable". Then click the Apply button
  • Final check: the column IPv6 should now be on "enable" at your VDSL or ADSL line.


That's it. You should now have IPv6. Check via http://ip6.nl/ or http://test-ipv6.com/. If not, reboot your  modem and computer once.

Technology used is 6RD. Address prefix is 2A00:CD8::/32

Telfort's mother company KPN yet has to introduce IPv6.

Draytek user here, I do get an IPv6 address, but no gateway. Therfore packets are only send over the ipv6 interface and non recieved. Any idea?
