How to add my static ipv6 IP's ?
« on: March 30, 2019, 12:06:13 AM »

I setup my tunnel and it does ping ipv6 sites and I can access them but I am stuck on how to add them.

This is my interface entrie:

auto he-ipv6
iface he-ipv6 inet6 v4tunnel
        address 2001:470:1F01:FFFF::109
        netmask 64
        ttl 255
        gateway 2001:470:1F01:FFFF::108

Do I just add my ipv6 to eth0 or to the he-ipv6 interface ?

Are you talking about your routed /64?  You assign an IP address to another interface on your router that connects to the rest of your network, same as you would for IPv4.  You then route any Internet-bound traffic from the rest of your /64 out your tunnel interface.
