Re: How to configure IPv6 using tunnelbroker.net

Thanks for the tutorial. I have a DOCSIS 3.0 router that is IPv6 ready. What is the advantage of using this? I have read that it will increase the number of available IP addresses to 2 to the power of 128 (128-bit addresses). I also read it will eliminate NAT, simplify address assignment, network renumbering, etc. I don't understand all that. Will this speed up internet surfing?:confused:

Sadly you can only select a 6to4 tunnel and not a 6in4.
The test on http://test-ipv6.com/ give you because of that 2 times a 7/10 on the test results.

This has nothing to do with speeding up the internet. The number of IPv4 addresses are running out. New sites become the only access able trough IPv6. To use a tunnel you can access those sites even you have no IPv6 address become from you ISP.

Re: How to configure IPv6 using tunnelbroker.net

The internet providers (lCox in my case) have yet to adopt IPv6. If Cox has it's a secret as their modems have IPv6 disabled in their firmware so I can't detect any.

As noted this just adds a "few" addresses. You may not able to link to long IPv6 addresses until your modem is re-provisioned by your carrier.

Re: How to configure IPv6 using tunnelbroker.net

I managed to set it using this setup, and all my devices in the network could access via ipv6. However how do I access a web server on the internal network from outside?

 

Also is there a way not to have the IPv6 address change on the internal devices?
