Join the network
On the Joiner device, start the Thread protocol to automatically join the network.
Check the state after a few moments to confirm. It may initially start as a child, but within two minutes it should upgrade to a router.
Also check the device's IPv6 addresses. It should have a Global address using the On-Mesh Prefix specified during formation of the Thread network through the OTBR Web GUI.
ipaddrfdde:ad11:11de:0:0:ff:fe00:9400 fd11:22:0:0:3a15:3211:2723:dbe1 #Global address with on-mesh prefix fe80:0:0:0:6006:41ca:c822:c337 fdde:ad11:11de:0:ed8c:1681:24c4:3562
Ping the external internet
Test the connectivity between the Joiner device in the Thread network and the external internet by pinging a public IPv4 address.
For example, the Well-Known NAT64 prefix of
64:ff9b::/96 and an IPv4 address
126.96.36.199 combine to form an IPv6 address of
Add an external route for the NAT64 Prefix:
sudo ot-ctl route add 64:ff9b::/96 s medDone
sudo ot-ctl netdata registerDone
Ping the synthesized IPv6 address
64:ff9b::808:808 from the OpenThread CLI on the Joiner device:
ping 64:ff9b::808:80816 bytes from 64:ff9b:0:0:0:0:808:808: icmp_seq=3 hlim=45 time=72ms
