IPv6 connectivity woes


Hi guys!

I'm trying to setup IPv6 connectivity on the "lan" side of the opnsense firewall but for some reason, while i do get and IP, it doesn't talk to anyone.

Setup is like this:

Internet ----------- [WAN: SLAAC] OPNsense [LAN: Track Interface WAN] ---------- Clients

OPNSense has internet connection no problem.
Any client that connects on the LAN side of it, get's and IP address (2001:XXX) but can't use it for anything, not even pinging the LAN interface (that also get's an IPv6 address).

Nothing obvious shows up on the firewall logs.

Any ideia of what I might be doing wrong?

OK, while I know it's different (Linux vs FreeBSD), comparing the route outputs from an OpenWRT router, which is actually doing the same job, looks like there are missing routes, which I really don't know it's normal.

Key differences:
- On OpenWRT, when configure to lan side to track an interface, it doesn't get a public IP address, but OPNSense does have it (there are actually 2 public addresses on the FW, one on each interface)
- On OpenWRT, I have ipv6 routes to every IP what was requested, but I get nothing like this on OPNSense. Example:

root@router-1:~# ip -6 r
