Got a tunnel from SixXS...how do i route it to my lan?

So i got a tunnel from SixXS and the tunnel is up. It is a static tunnel directly into my Cisco router and i am able to ping and traceroute IPV6 sites from my Cisco. Now here is my question,

Hurricane Electric will route you a /64 to your tunnel point to point /64 so you can use IPV6 on your internal Lan. SixXS does not do that right away...is their a way i can use IPV6 on my internal Lan without getting routed a /64? I'm thinking their must be a way, or they wouldn't route you a /64 to begin with...since that's more IP's than people on the earth.

Thanks all!

Yes and no. So if you had a entire /64 routed to the VLAN or tunnel endpoint you could use proxy-ndp.

... but sixxs is only giving you a single address ::2 within that /64.

You will need to apply for a routed /48 (you'll probably have to wait a week for the credits).

Is there some reason you aren't using Hurricane Electric? There are no hoops to jump thru, no waiting. In addition to the routed /64 you can get an additional /48 too.

Yea I wanted to try Sixxs due to the hops to the closest pop (around 5 to Boston) but i have just set up HE, and it works like a champ. Now if i can only figure out how ipv6 works...

Thanks!

Maybe he wants to reach Cogent.

It could also be HE's nearest PoP is full. I know that was the case with Chicago a few months ago and I setup a sixxs tunnel instead.

Of course if HE is closer and better latency, you should go with it.

Pretty much the same as IPv4 with the exception of larger addresses and NDP.

Many sites on IPv6, here's one:

»linux-sxs.org/networking/ipv6_fo···ers.html

The Hurricane Electric site also hosts an excellent forum.
