Get IPv6 Ready

First step is to register a free IPv6 address. Tunnelbroker (tunnelbroker.net) from Hurricane Electrics is one of the best ipv6 offerers. With just a few clicks, you can create a free account.

After you get your generated password to your mail-account, you can login.

After login select on the left side «User Functions > Create Regular Tunnel»;

Important: Your ISP and your Router/Gateway should allow ICMP packets.

# Hurricane Electrics IPv4 Server: 216.66.80.30
# My local IP Address: 87.154.168.185
 
# Hurricane Electrics IPv6 Server: 2001:470:1f0a:1514::1/64
# My IPv6 Adress 2001:470:1f0a:1514::2/64
 
/sbin/ip tunnel add he-ipv6 mode sit remote 216.66.80.30 local 87.154.168.185  ttl 255
/sbin/ip link set he-ipv6 up
/sbin/ip addr add 2001:470:1f0a:1514::2/64 dev he-ipv6
/sbin/ip route add ::/0 dev he-ipv6
/sbin/ip route add 2001:470:9d36::/48 dev lo
exit 0

Some additions (17.07.2010 – 21:46):
Also you can use this standard Debian configuration method “/etc/network/interfaces”:

# IPv6 over tunnel-broker
auto he-ipv6
iface he-ipv6 inet6 v4tunnel
 endpoint   216.66.80.30
 ttl        255
 address    2001:470:1f0a:1514::2
 netmask    64
 mtu        1480

Of course you will need this extra route to make it working:

1
/sbin/ip route add ::/0 dev he-ipv6

Check your configuration:

firewall ~ # ping6 ipv6.google.com
PING ipv6.google.com(2a00:1450:8004::63) 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 2a00:1450:8004::63: icmp_seq=1 ttl=56 time=42.6 ms
64 bytes from 2a00:1450:8004::63: icmp_seq=2 ttl=56 time=42.9 ms


IPv6 routing table:

1
ip -6 r

Check your security:

1
nmap 2001:470:1f0a:1514::2
