Setup ipv6 gateway

Wed Jan 30, 2008 5:15 am

hello,

To day i did get the ipv6 tunnel to work.
Use: http://www.tunnelbroker.net
I have never setup a ipv6 gateway, have done it whit ipv4.
But ipv6 was tricky.
Assigned /64: 2001:470:1f09:bc::

What now?
IP:
Did add 2001:470:1f09:bc::1 to my router
Route:
Did add 2001:470:1f09:bc::1 gateway des: ::

and then i did add linux:
ifconfig eth0 inet6 add 2001:470:1f09:bc::4/64
ip -6 route add ::/3 via 2001:470:1f09:bc::1
But get noe route to the host.

What are im doing wrong?
Other thing i did not understand why do wee add
/ipv6 route add dst-address=2000::/3 gateway=::216.66.80.26

on the tunnel to http://www.tunnelbroker.net?

IPv6 auto-configures with link local addresses so you shouldn't have to do anything on the client to get basic connectivity.

ifconfig eth0 should have a line similar to this:

inet6 addr: fe80::20c:29ff:fed5:bcc1/64 Scope:Link

and netstat -A inet6 -r should show a default route entry similar to this:

*/0 fe80::200:24ff:fec1:e128 UGDA 1024 9 0 eth0

In this case this is the link local address of the LAN interface on my router.

Once this is in place then ping6 http://www.kame.net should work and you should see the dancing turtle on their website.

2000::/3 is the current global unicast address space.

Regards

Andrew
