Tunnel ipv4 update problems

Hi all,
I've experimented problems a lot of time with ipv4 upgrade, but even like now.
I've changed ip and TB doesn't work correctly.
I'm still using the same config, I've tried all aviable options, so I think there's a routing problem through you.
How many time I need to wait for Ipv4 upgrading ?
Thank you for pay me attention


i don't mean to be rude but this service is free from a big company, they're not spending money on teaching you how to network. (this may not even be my right place to say) but you really need to read on such an issue, or at least ask a specific question. he.net likely not only disagrees with me saying this, but would rather me not at all.

it's just my oppinion that when i run a free service i can not stand someone putting their burdon on me (running the free service) because they don't know what the hell they're doing. even 3 wrongs don't make a right.



Currently our free IPv6 tunnel broker service is "some assembly required".

We are working on more detailed step by step diagnostic instructions for those new to networking.

Long term we plan on coming up with a diagnostic perl script (for Linux, BSD, Mac) and visual basic script (for Windows) that people can run that will perform a bunch of tests that will explain what needs to be done (and also so they can paste the test results back as text).

Eventually we plan on offering an autoconfiguration tool that will take as much of this as possible out of the users hands (for those that need/want it).

This is the sort of thing we'd like emailed to ipv6@he.net directly about.

In the meantime, I've verified that your tunnel is configured on our tunnel server, and can ping both your ipv4 endpoint as well as your side if the ipv6 tunnel. There doesn't appear to be an issue with the tunnel you've established.
