I'm currently trying to configure my bridge in Debian 7.
I do have a working
config for IPv4:
auto eth0 iface eth0 inet manual auto br0 iface br0 inet static address xx.xx.xx.131 netmask 255.255.255.192 gateway xx.xx.xx.129 bridge_ports eth0 bridge_stp off bridge_fd 1 bridge_hello 2 bridge_maxage 12 iface br0 inet6 static address xx:xx:xx::2 netmask 64 gateway xxxx::1
But on boot my interface only comes up with a IPv4 address. I also tried adding
up ip -6 addr add xx:xx:xx:2/64 dev br0 up ip -6 route add default via xxxx:1 dev br0
to the IPv4 config.
No success either.
If I execute the
ip -6 commands listed above after the reboot IPv6 works just fine.
Caveat: I'm running a clean minimal install of Debian 7 nothing has yet been added.
