Setup IPv6 Tunnel: IPv4 endpoint has been blocked
« on: September 14, 2010, 02:10:12 AM »

Hi there,

I've been trying to set up an IPv6 tunnel with your tool.
Somehow i can't get it to work, because something seems to be wrong with my IPv4 endpoint.
I get the error "Error: That IPv4 endpoint has been blocked (RFC1918 Private Address Space) "
That means i can't get an IPv6 tunnel to work if my computer is located in a Class A private network?

Greetings
Nilaya

Not by using your private IP, no.  You need to supply your public IP address, and then tell the NAT device you're using to forward proto41 onto your private IP, put your computer in the DMZ, or something similar, depending on what your NAT device is capable of.

We can't just route to your 10. address, since those routes don't exist on the public Internet.

So i guess that's a "no", because I don't have access to the network devices.. Guess i'll have to do these tasks on the weekends when I have a proper network available.
