IPv6 Omada Controller Support, when? "at sight!"
I was amazed about IPv6 by 2006. Since then I preach IPv6 to everybody. In 2009, I kind of affront some guy from Portugal Telecom in a conference asking for native IPv6, which promise native IPv6 in 2011. This guy actually was Zeinal Bava, the CFO of Portugal Telecom (later CEO).
In the meanwhile I started to work with 6lowpan and IoT. With that I tried to implement the RPL to Linux Kernel Space.
I always loved the concept of prefix in IPv6 and the option to stop caring about NAT and port forwarding. Unfortunately, although the word "prefix" includes "fix"in it, ISPs are always updating the IPv6 prefix, which is simply idiotic.
About one year ago, I invest on Omada expecting to get some way to manage the IPv6 prefix updates from ISP in my infrastructure. I had 3 options: pfsense, develop some kind of solution my self, or Omada, a fresh and promissing solution, with centralized stats, wifi roaming and nice VLAN setup.
Big mistake. I choose Omada. I started with Linux Controller, TL-SG2210P and EAP225-Outdoor. I was very pleased and move forward with ER605 v1.0 and OC200 v1.0.
IPv6 support was less than basic. Just dhcp. No firewall, NAT-PT, no logs. The router ER605 standalone doesn't provide much more about IPv6. So my ER605 is just consuming power for more than a year.
In every new Omada Controller release notes is out, I simply search "ipv6" and I keep getting "0 results".
Could you please provide information about IPv6 in Omada roadmap? I'm a little bit upset of waiting so long for something that's simply what made Internet possible, the IP.
IPv6 Support: Am I asking too much?
