DNS dual stack and Router Advertisement

Filed under: Studies, SysAdmin — acidborg @ 20:24

I haven’t blogged this week because I’ve been busy with many things. We have managed to get BIND to work dual stack, it is to said, with IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. This wasn’t difficult, but it was a bit confusing the way BIND reads IPv6 addresses.

We managed to configure router advertisement as well with radvd. This was harder because we were advertising IPv4-compatible addresses (::IPv4 type) and that wasn’t allowed. It seems that it only advertises global scope /64 addresses, but I’m not sure if this is right or we are doing it wrong. More on this on future posts…

On Saturday, I’m driving to Santiago to visit my family & friends. Next Christmas I won’t go there, so I’m going 9 days now instead 🙂

I’m not going to blog for 10 days, so please be patient 😛 .See you soon!


  1. Nice idea!

    So that’s a great idea. I was thinking about coding something like this in bash sccripting, but I ain’t doing now. 😉
