How-To Setup IPv6 on Time Warner Cable with pfSense

By | 2015/10/17

TWC in most areas offers native IPv6. Here is how I got IPv6 working with pfSense in my area (Raleigh, NC) with router advertisements and stateless autoconfig!


For whatever reason, often I had to reboot pfsense at times to have changes appear. If anything appears odd or not working, reboot. 🙂

Also the various known methods of pfsense/IPv6 with ISPs such as Comcast on this page do not work for TWC in my area at least from my testing.

1. Setup WAN

For the WAN interface, set the following:

IPv4 Configuration Type: DHCP
IPv6 Configuration Type: DHCP6

DHCP6 Client Configuration
> DHCPv6 Prefix Delegation size: 64


2. Setup LAN

On the LAN settings page, use the following settings:

IPv6 Configuration Type: Track Interface

Track IPv6 Interface: WAN

IPv6 Prefix ID: 0

3. Reboot!

Reboot pfsense


You may then have to restart clients on your network or restart their network services.

Note! I also had to uncheck Interfaces > WAN > Block bogon networks

This for some reason blocked some things that IPv6 requires to work! So leave that blank (unchecked) for WAN!

Rock on,

    Where is the LAN settings page? I cannot find “IPv6 Configuration Type”, “Track IPv6 Interface” or “IPv6 Prefix ID”.

      Nevermind, I found it. I just needed to go to the bottom of the dropdown on the LAN interface page.

    Hi Scott,
    I’m on TWC in New England and have configured PFSense as you did but I’m not getting an IPv6 from TWC. My previous firewall was so I know they have it turned on in my area.

    Any thoughts?
