OSPFv3 Convergence Issue between OPNSense & Cisco Router

        I have been digging around the internet and have been trying to get IPv6 up and running on my lab. Here is my current layout:
Home Network I have been trying to get OPNSense and the Cisco 1900 router to give each other's networks via OSPFv3. DHCPv6 is forwarding all the correct prefixes to the Home Lab and the router is distributing them properly. The OPNSense FW and the home lab can ping each other. However, they never seem to converge and establish a DR/BR relationship. Here are my configurations: CISCO 1900 CONFIGURATION
ipv6 unicast-routing

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. I know I am missing something, but what is it? Cheers! Raksul
