Let’s say my network interface on my notebook has the following IP:
This means I got a02:8109:b6bf:bb24::/64 for my network. Got this range from my ISP.
I want to configure my RPL network to have a02:8109:b6bf:bb24:0292::/80 as the IPv6 range.
So I used the following command:
ifconfig 9 add a02:8109:b6bf:bb24:0292::1/80
I also tried the following:
ifconfig 9 add a02:8109:b6bf:bb24:0292::1
Both doesn’t respond with a success message.
The basic idea: I add this route to my Notebook and the router to be able to route the packages to the correct location.
Is this a bug or do I understand something wrong about the IPv6 routing?
I use the nrf52dk. 6LoWPAN over BLE (adoption layer). Nimble. It’s a simple tree. root is connected to my Notebook and the other nodes to the root. I already configured RPL with ifconfig 9 add 2001:db8::1. This works fine. But I would like to use another global address and /80 not /64.
Did you configure the default route on your RPL root back to your laptop?
Not yet. I give it a try and configure this first.
I, more or less, followed this guide. It worked fine with a /64 range.
RIOT should have no problems with longer prefixes than 64 bits for global addresses. I noticed however in the past (when configuring my home network without RIOT), that Linux can be a bit difficult with that.
Please try configuring the default route first, however.
