Problem adding address
« on: May 31, 2011, 09:12:24 AM »

Hi, I'm on a Windows 7 laptop, trying to set up tunnelbroker, and I get this error when running the configuration commands:

C:\windows\system32>netsh interface ipv6 add address IP6Tunnel 2001:470:c:1177::2/64
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

Any help would be appreciated :-)

Thanks,
Jason

Oh! Didn't realise that was still there... I added it to test BECAUSE this was happening. I removed it again but the same error occurs :(

Just to make sure...does your "IP6Tunnel" adapter actually exist?

It should show in ipconfig /all

There's no adaptor called IP6Tunnel, even though the command ran without any error, I think it added the Local Area Connection* 9 adaptor instead.

That's why you're getting the error above.

Also, I'm pretty sure I remember seeing that the adapter HAS to be called IP6Tunnel to work properly.

If the adapter is indeed LAC 9, try removing and re-creating.

Just tried to remove it, but here's the error I got:

netsh interface ipv6>delete interface "Local Area Connection* 9"
Catastrophic failure

It could just be me, but that sounds pretty bad.

Haha I don't think I've ever seen that before

Can you re-run the commands to create the IP6tunnel adapter?
