IPv6 Friday: Tutorial on How To Set Up An IPv6 Tunnel From SIXXS

By Dan YorkDirector, Internet Technology

How easy is it to “IPv6-enable” your network using a tunnel from SIXXS?  What are the steps you need to go through to do so?

Over on his “IPv6 Friday” site, Olle Johansson has a post up today about “Eating my own dog food: IPv6-enabling my training class room” where he walks through the steps involved with setting up a tunnel from on an Ubuntu server.  He goes on to explain how to then set up your local network to receive IPv6 addresses via router advertisements.

Kudos to Olle for continuing to publish great tutorials like this and I hope many of you will try this out as a way to get IPv6 connectivity into your current networks!
