Need to change server address
« on: October 09, 2016, 07:58:20 PM »

I have moved servers since setting up my tunnel. I would like to keep my IPv6 address space but simply change the server that my tunnel is through to reduce latency between the new server and the tunnel server. The old server was in the US and new is in France. Is this possible, and if so how?

IPs are tied to the tunnel server they're assigned from.  The deaggregation resulting from portability between tunnel servers would quickly grow unwieldy.
