I give you a little description of the network Structure and what I would like to be done and why! Unfortunately my ISP (one of the top in Italy) provide the IPv6 but only for navigate out, if you try to reach a service (IP camera, remote desktop or what else) over IPv6 you simply can't in traffic is blocked by ISP router. I could not change the router of ISP because I have the FTTH technology and ISP do not release the technical details for the converter fiber to Ethernet. So I try out with the solution you can see in the image, use the IPv6/IPv4 from the ISP for navigate and an Hurricane Electric tunnel to be reachable from Outside.

The only issue I encountered by reach my goal is that the NAS begin to communicate with the external world only after I perform a traceroute, after that until I keep a connection active all works perfectly; after a while no communication in the HE tunnel, again the connection seems broken and not communicate, after traceroute again ok!

I have really no idea on what could cause this issue, is rally strange to me :(

  • HE support says maybe could be the protocol 41 the cause this particular issue, now I try to confirm it with the ISP and determinate if the issue are caused by the two tunnel I had configured. – AtomiX84 Sep 11 '18 at 18:45

After long time a solution has been implemented: I substitute completely the provider router with one of my own.

With out the provider router Hurricane tunnels comes up well.

So I suppose that the problem was caused by provider router filter the protocol 41 as per Hurricane supports says.
