More devices on one tunnel without router
« on: April 15, 2021, 07:50:59 AM »

Hello,
I would like to ask if it is possible to connect multiple endpoints (in one local network with the same public IP) to one IPv6 tunnel without the use of a router, assigning a different IP to each one.

Thank you for your answers.

No, you need a router...how else would traffic get routed between your network and HE?

Do you do this with IPv4? No of course not unless your ISP handed you a flat connection with a /29 or greater on your WAN connection. You have some sort of NAT appliance/router. There is still routing. You need something on your LAN to act as that IPv6 gateway/router for all the other hosts. This isn't a flat network, its a ptp tunnel.
