I am unable to ping6 my gateway or beyond. I am able to ping6 my loopback successfully, but that is all.

This connection/IPv6 address did work at one point, but was not checked for a long time.

but a tcpdump for ipv6 traffic 'does' show misc IPv6 traffic hitting the wire.

It could be ip tables, or something. Try:

#ip6tables -P INPUT ACCEPT
#ip6tables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT
#ip6tables -P FORWARD ACCEPT

  • fw is disabled. note the second to last command.

  • @jack2222 If the echo request is dropped by ip6tables on the local machine, the error message produced will be ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted. Not that I would expect a FreeBSD machine to be using ip6tables.

  • @kasperd no sir -> [\u@r2d2:/root] # ip6tables --help ip6tables: not found.. it's acting like a firewall or ip.forward, but everything is initialized in sysctl and firewall is disabled.
