HE tunnel not working on Snow Leopard Mac OS
« on: February 23, 2011, 03:18:48 AM »

Hello,

For some reason i cannot make the tunnel to work, here's the script im using:

ifconfig gif0 create
ifconfig gif0 tunnel $localv4 $remotev4
ifconfig gif0 inet6 $localv6 $remotev6 prefixlen 128
route -n add -inet6 default $remotev6
ifconfig gif0 up
ip6 -a

since im behind a nat (netgear wgt624) im using private ip 192.168.8.2 in the localv4.

when i do "ping6 ipv6.google.com" and i do tcpdump, i can see the packets going out of my laptop, but i dont get any echo reply at all. I also tried to put the host in the DMZ but that didnt help at all. Im out of options here and any advice is welcome, thanks

I've heard of some netgears that don't pass protocol41 traffic, even if your host is in the DMZ.  Is it also possible that your ISP is blocking it?

Are you running a firewall somewhere that might be blocking traffic?  Turn off every firewall and try again.  If that doesn't help, put your host in front of your netgear and see if that works

It won't help you establish an HE IPv6 Tunnel, but you could install Miredo for OSX - http://www.deepdarc.com/miredo-osx/
I'm using it under Snow Leopard and it will get you to the IPv6 Internet in about 2 minutes.

Just tried it, works for me, thanks!
