Absolute Secure Access and IPv6

Absolute Secure Access (formerly NetMotion Mobility) is a premium enterprise secure remote access solution with deep user and application insight supporting Windows, Mac, iOS (iPhone and iPad), and Android devices. Although Absolute Secure Access supports IPv6 for remote network connections and client IP address assignment, the latter is not enabled by default. Administrators must make additional changes to the configuration to assign IPv6 addresses to their clients so they can access resources inside the tunnel using IPv6.

DHCPv6 and SLAAC

Absolute Secure Access supports DHCPv6 and Stateless Address Autoconfiguration (SLAAC) methods for assigning IPv6 addresses to connected clients. Although IPv6 client addressing is not enabled by default, it is quick and easy to configure.

Note: Absolute Secure Access does not currently support static IPv6 prefix assignment.

Enable IPv6

To enable IPv6 global support for all Absolute Secure Access clients, open the Secure Access management console and navigate to Configure > Client Settings > Virtual Address > Allocation Method: IPv6. Administrators can choose to support either DHCPv6 alone or DHCPv6 and SLAAC. After making a selection, click the Apply button to save the changes.

Once configured, Absolute Secure Access clients will be assigned an IPv6 address and can access IPv6 resources over the Secure Access tunnel.

Split Tunneling

If you have configured the Absolute Secure Access policy for split tunneling, ensure you have included your internal IPv6 prefix(es) defined in the split tunneling policy.
