6RD is supposed to be run by your IPv4 provider, in place of 6to4 with their own address space. This isn't an IPv6 transition method we'd provide.

There has been some reports of routers which do not support 6in4 but do support 6RD. If you are asking because you own such a router it's worth pointing out that some users have successfully made such routers work with

The trick is that 6RD configuration options are so flexible that by tweaking configuration options 6RD can be made to behave like 6to4 or 6in4 or anything in-between. At least one such router is a little bit picky about configuration options and will refuse to use a routed /64 but it will work with a routed /48.
