Title: Setting up a tunnell to a Google Compute Engine (GCE) instance
Post by: apollock on January 19, 2015, 07:46:04 PM
Hi,

Is there any way to bypass the ICMP requirement? I'm trying to see if I can set up an IPv6 tunnel to my GCE instance, and I can't get past the inability to ping it.

"IP is not ICMP pingable. Please make sure ICMP is not blocked. If you are blocking ICMP, please allow 66.220.2.74 through your firewall."

Nope! Better edit that firewall, or beg with your ISP. Also when did GCE get IPv6 support?

All Compute Engine networks use the IPv4 protocol. Compute Engine currently does not support IPv6. However, Google is a major advocate of IPv6 and it is an important future direction.

For this issue, you should ask your Google which provides you IPv4 connectivity.
