#31 Networking Problem (IPv6)

Praveen Jha

I had colinux coLinux-0.6.1 running successfully on my
windows XP system with the networking features as well.

But today I decided to install coLinux-0.6.4 and ever
since I am unable to ping colinux from windows. I
didn't change anything else.

I am getting the below error message:

IPv6 over IPv4 tunneling driver
eth0: no IPv6 routers present

Thanks in advance.

    Check, that modules are installed. See you the module ipv6
    with "lsmod"?
    Have you the directory /lib/modules/2.6.11-co-0.6.4?

    If not, install the modules from vmlinux-modules.tar.gz
    The file exist in your installation directory. You can
    mount this windows directory via cofs, and than simple
    untar this archive, for sample
    mount -t cofs cofs0 /mnt
    tar xzf /mnt/vmlinux-modules.tar.gz -C /

    Shure you need to configure "cofs0=C:\Progs\colinux" in
    your command line for colinux or in XML file before.

    If your modules are right: Check, that TAP device under
    Windows has an IP or/and your PcapBridge is updated to
    3.1. These steps are depends on your used network type, I
    not know.

    The ipv6 error messages have nothing to do with the error pinging from coLinux. Folks are using ipv6 in coLinux 0.6.4 with-out issue. Double-check your configuration and ensure that something didn't change between 0.6.3 and 0.6.4 that requires your attention.
