Discover/list other hosts:
ping6 -I eth0 ff02::1
ip -6 neigh show
To connect to a host using the link-local address you need to specify which interface to use (see "zone index
ssh -6 fe80::fe80::a00:aaaa:bbbb:cccc%eth0
The solution described here
works for me.
I did the following on the internal host where Grafana is installed:
- Configured Apache (on port 80) as reverse proxy to Grafana (on port 3000)
- Setup the virtualhost to add/set the required headers to login automatically as user admin
Relevant section from /etc/grafana/grafana.ini:
enabled = true
;header_name = X-WEBAUTH-USER
;header_property = username
auto_sign_up = false
Apache config extract (you will need to enable mod_proxy, mod_proxy_http and mod_headers for this to work):
ProxyPass / http://localhost:3000/
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:3000/
RequestHeader set "X-WEBAUTH-USER" "admin"
On a separate Apache instance exposed to more networks I did the following:
- Configured Apache as reverse proxy to the internal instance
- Restricted access from specific IP addresses
- Setup a rule to redirect requests to the root of the website (and only those) to a specific dashboard
This is how the Apache config looks like (requires mod_proxy, mod_proxy_http and mod_alias; IP addresses, host names etc. changed)
Require ip 192.0.2.0/24
Require ip 203.0.113.0/24
Require ip 2001:0db8:85a4::/64
Require ip 2001:0db8:85a5::/64
RedirectMatch ^/$ /dashboard/db/mydashboard
ProxyPass / http://[2001:0db8:85a3::aaaa:8a2e:0370:7334]/
ProxyPassReverse / http://[2001:0db8:85a3::aaaa:8a2e:0370:7334]/
Using a public IPv6 address on the internal host allows the whole thing to work with just a few firewall rules, without the need to mess with NAT or a VPN.
Despite having read the opposite, it looks like IPv6 is disabled by default on the latest OSMC
release (2015.06-1). I've tried adding a sysctl.d file to set /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/eth0/disable_ipv6 to 0, but this did not help. It worked only when I ran the command manually. By going through numerous forum posts I eventually found out that you need to use the connmanctl
*AO Wired ethernet_b827ebaabbcc_cable
connmanctl> config ethernet_b827ebaabbcc_cable --ipv6 auto preferred
This enables IPv6 with autoconfiguration
, turns on Privacy Extensions
and prefers these ephemeral addresses over the autoconfigured ones.
The same command works for wireless as well, you just need to select the appropriate interface (the service name will start with wifi_
" will display basic usage info.
If for some reason you would like to disable IPv6, the command would be "config ... --ipv6 off
In anticipation of World IPv6 Launch Day
(6 June 2012), this website is now fully reachable over IPv6.
