Title: He.net 6to4 tunnel in Microsoft Windows 10 Build 1903.
Post by: Rewillis on June 25, 2020, 05:21:15 PM
Running Microsoft Windows 10 ( Home ) Edition, Build 1903.  I followed the steps to cut and paste 6to4 tunnel commands in the command window, initially using the IPv4 address provided to the broker.  The response was okay.  6to4 tunnel is configured in Netgear D6400 router.  When I ping my He.net tunnel IPv6 address ( i.e., "2001:470:4:6a3::2" ), using the He.net "Looking Glass" link, the command times out.  Why is this happening?  :)

Update: I am able to ping my He.net 6to4 tunnel IP address ( i.e., "2001:470:4:6a3::2" ) from the Microsoft Windows 10 ( Home ) Edition command prompt, as shown in the attachment, below.  Any suggestions?  :)

What do you mean "6to4"? HE uses "6in4", not "6to4".

And what do you mean you have configured it in Netgear D6400 router? Is this router capable of terminating the tunnel? If yes, then you don't need to paste anything in the Windows command prompt window. If no, then you need to forward protocol 41 (_not_ port 41!) to your PC where you enter the commands.

tjeske, the terminology in my Netgear D6400 router "6to4 Tunnel" settings is "6to4."  Also, I do not know what you mean by my router terminating the tunnel - please be more specific.  Finally, you will need to inform me regarding protocol 41 ( I know that it is not referring to port 41, though ).  Thank you.  :)
