General Instructions for IPv6 Tunneling (Debian 6+/Ubuntu 11.04+)
« on: September 01, 2012, 06:29:00 AM »

I'm limiting the instructions to those specific distributions and above because I cannot test on any other versions.

Note:  You may need root permissions to complete the following steps depending on your machine configuration.

1. Begin by removing any tunnels you have in place (unless they work!)
2. Edit /etc/network/interfaces and add the following lines, replacing the tokens in {} with the values from the tunnel you created on tunnelbroker:
Code: [Select]
auto tun6to4
iface tun6to4 inet6 v4tunnel
  address {Tunnelbroker Client IPv6 Address}
  netmask 64
  endpoint {Tunnelbroker Server IPv4 Address}
  gateway {Tunnelbroker Server IPv6 Address}
  ttl 64
  up ip link set mtu 1280 dev $IFACE
3. Execute the command 'ifup tun6to4'
4. Test your configuration by running 'ping6 ipv6.google.com'

Exactly just what I was searching for. Thank you!
