I'm trying to use VMware Workstation 12.1.1 to connect to an IPv6 network over my wireless card in order to test some things. Does this even work?
I found a really old thread from 2008 saying that it didn't and there was a bug report: IPv6+Bridged+Wireless
But that was 8 years ago. Has this been fixed?
What I'm doing is setting up VMnet0 (the bridge) to connect only to my wireless card (i.e. not auto-bridging). SLAAC and DHCPv6 work fine on the Windows 7 64-bit host. It's also worth noting they work fine in VirtualBox guests that bridge to wireless.
But in the VMware Linux guest, which is set up for SLAAC, following happens:
Everything works fine over IPv4; it's just IPv6 that seems to have trouble.
Also, everything works fine over the LAN connection, including IPv6. It's just wireless that has trouble. But LAN is not very nice to use on a laptop.
I am using bridged networking and I am also having issues with IPv6 when using Wi-Fi. It works fine with Ethernet cable though.
Any news about the issue?
