Description Thomas Schäfer 2014-07-02 13:36:42 UTC
Created attachment 597010 [details]

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:30.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/30.0

I observed this behavior only once. It may not apply in general.


Notebook default installation with Networkmanager. 

Trying to connect to an IPv6-only network. In KDE-Networkmanager "needs IPv4" disabled.

Connecting fails with "DCHPv6 request timed out".

After shutting down the Firewall it works.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
dhcpv6 Server - client configuration , problem at client
Actual Results:  
dhcpv6 times out

Expected Results:  
should get answers

Hi Thomas,

this is a known issue (bnc#783002) that was already fixed. Please try to update to the latest version of SuSEfirewall2.


* Tue May 27 2014 meissner@suse.com
- susefirewall2-allow-dhcpv6.patch: allow dhcpv6 incoming to allow
  better function in a DHCPv6 driven network (bnc#783002)

Closing as duplicated.
