Tunnel Working, now what?
« on: January 07, 2010, 11:27:58 PM »

I have followed the instructions a while ago and got a tunnel working on my computer at home. I'm also testing this for work, and have done the same with another tunnel there too.

Now I would like to get the rest of the test machines at home and at work online with IPv6 addresses, but don't know where to start.

I assume I leave the /64 tunnel endpoint on the first machine to open the tunnel, but how can I then route our even IPv6 autoconfigure the rest of the machines to connect too, or do they need to use addresses from the /48 subnet?

Thanks in advance,

When you first signed up for your account, you received two is a routed /64 and the other is the client/server /64.  The client/server allocation is essentially useless to you; you need to assign addresses out of that routed /64.  If you need more than one network/subnet, you will need to request a /48 and assign /64's out of that allocation to your clients.

To do the assigning, you can do Router Advertisement (RA) or DHCPv6.  RA is easier to set can use Radvd on most any *nix or BSD setup, and many routers will also assign them for you.

Post back if you need any clarification.
