Hi, I've just configured my tunnel but I don't understand if the real ipv6 address of my eth0 is client IPV6 address or an ip from router /64.
Also I don't understan how to register an IPV6 domain.
Can someone help me??



Chances are, you need to give the ethx interface an Ip out of your routed /64, the tunnel IP (client ip) would be on the SITx interface or whatever you're calling it.

Maybe a little more detail about your setup, os (assuming linux?), interfaces, etc. for a clearer answer.


Hi , thks for your answer, this is my tunnel settings

Server IPv4 Address:
Server IPv6 Address:2001:470:1f0a:107e::1/64
Client IPv4 Address:
Client IPv6 Address:2001:470:1f0a:107e::2/64

And this is my ifconfig output:
he-ipv6   Link encap:IPv6 in IPv4 
          indirizzo inet6: 2001:470:1f0b:107e::2/64 Scope:Global
          UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP  MTU:1480  Metric:1
          RX packets:118 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:147 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisioni:0 txqueuelen:0
          Byte RX:98526 (98.5 KB)  Byte TX:14994 (14.9 KB)


the ipv6 on the tunnel itself should be the client ipv6 address, in your case, the 1f0a address that ends in ::2

You assign an address out of the 1f0b range (typically ::1, but not required) to your ethernet card for the rest of your network.
