UPVOTE. It would be really nice to have these capabilities built into pfSense. The Viagenie implementation is nice and stateful and apparently already works on pf under OpenBSD 4.6.

#2 Updated by Andreas Peetz about 3 years ago

UPVOTE. I really like to be able to run my network with IPv6 only and make legacy IPv4 site available through NAT64.

#3 Updated by Chris Buechler over 2 years ago

  • Subject changed from NAT64 gateway Support to NAT64 Support
  • Category changed from Interfaces to Rules/NAT
  • Priority changed from Low to Normal
  • Target version deleted (2.2)
  • Affected version changed from 2.2 to 2.1-IPv6

#4 Updated by Rodrigo Ferraz over 1 year ago

UPVOTE. Since most ISPs are already turning IPv6 into reality on many homes and work places around the world, this feature has become a must for pfSense. I would like to kindly ask for the priority of this feature to be raised.

#5 Updated by Acacio Cruz over 1 year ago

UPC Cablecom in Switzerland just became a "IPv6 only" ISP last month. (IPv6 Dual Stack Lite)

UPVOTE. I'd love to be able to set up an IPv6-only network and just use NAT64 to redirect old requests.

#8 Updated by Nicolas Vollmar 5 months ago

My new ISP provides native IPv6 and I would prefere not to have configuring my hole network with IPv4 if I could just setup my pf sense to do the NAT64 instead.

#9 Updated by Martin Hansen 4 months ago

UPVOTE, word up on this. It should be prioritized significantly.

Too late for 2.4.0...

First of all, thank you for the great open source firewall product. As Apple starts to require all the new apps have to work under NAT64, pfSense will be a good experimenting platform if pfSense supports it natively. As far as I know, NAT64 feature was merged into the FreeBSD upstream, so it's possible that pfSense can support it without too much effort. I wonder if there is any plan that pfSense can support DNS64/NAT64 in the nearly future?

This will be a very important feature for many frustrated ios app developers who can not easily reproduce NAT64 environment in house. Thanks.

Would like to see support for NAT64/DNS64 in pfsense. Deployment of DNS64 outside of the gateway is somewhat convoluted, requiring additional hardware, and adds latency to DDNS lookups (since the DNS requests would have to go through a separate host before going to pfsense.) It would be ideal for pfsense to integrate these services.
