Last month, I got a Ubnt EdgeRouter Pro. It’s my first time dealing with this kind of router.
Most home routers have two interfaces, WAN and LAN. There is usually a 4 port switch for the LAN, and also a wireless AP connected to the LAN.
For the business router, there is no WAN or LAN, just many interfaces, and you define them, and setup their relations and connections.
Demo 1: A basic SOHO setup (WAN and LAN)
Here is how the interface dashboard looks like:
Follow this example from UBNT:
remember, if you WAN is using a public IP without DHCP, you should setup the system gateway [System(lower-left-corner) -> System gateway address:]
Demo 2: Setup Routed Native /48 IPv6
Assume you’ve already have an IPv6 allocation:
/64 Allocation :2001:64:64:64::/64
/64 Gateway: 2001:64:64:64::1
Now, you need a /48 IPv6 routed to 2001:64:64:64::2 (It could be any non-gateway address under your /64 assignment)
/48 Allocation: 2001:48:48::0/48
/48 Gateway defined by yourself: 2001:64:64:64::2
/48 LAN interface address: 2001:48:48::1/48
Your ISP will route 2001:48:48::0/48 to 2001:64:64:64::2 by your request.
(I searched over the Internet, only tunneled IPv6 setup instructions was found)
Here is my instruction:
- Set the /48 gateway [2001:64:64:64::2] as one of the WAN’s addresses.
- Set [2001:48:48::1/48] as the address for LAN (pickup the one you prefer, this is the LAN address, just like 192.168.1.1 for you home router)
- ConfigTree – protocols – static – router6 [For step 4 and 5]
- add route to [0::0/0] update-list then set it’s next-hop to [2001:64:64:64::1] This will define the default route for /64
- Goto interface-route6 add route [2001:48:48::0/48] next hop interface should be your LAN interface
- Move to interfaces – ethernet – eth0[depends on your WAN] – ipv6 – router-advert – prefix
- add perfix [2001:64:64:64::1] – update-list
- Move to firewall – ipv6-name add some rule sets on your demand
- Preview and Apply setting
- Setup your client’s (a server connected to LAN for example) IPv6 address.
