- The IP address you plan to use the tunnel from (e.g. your current
IP, or the IP of the server you want to set this up on) -
- Hit the registration page and sign up.
- Wait for the confirmation email, then login.
- From the (left-hand-side) “User Functions” menu click “Create Regular Tunnel”.
- Enter the IP you want to use the tunnel from
- Pick a host near the machine with that IP - the closer it is, the shorter the path your IPv6 packets will have to take to hit the IPv6 Internet.
Pick a name for the tunnel - it is just used as the interface name on
Linux. Let’s say
sit1. Now click on the your new tunnel, and
you’ll be on the “Tunnel details” page.
Open up /etc/network/interfaces:
auto sit1 iface sit1 inet6 v4tunnel address $address netmask 64 local $yourip endpoint $endpoint up ip route add 2000::0/3 via $theirip dev sit1
$address is the value of “Client IPv6 address”
$yourip is the local IP address
$endpoint is the value of “Server IPv4 address”
$theirip is the value of “Server IPv6 address”, with the /64 removed
iputils-ping is installed (
sudo aptitude install
iputils-ping, if it isn’t), then try
ping6 www.kame.net in a
PING www.kame.net(orange.kame.net) 56 data bytes 64 bytes from orange.kame.net: icmp_seq=1 ttl=54 time=126 ms
If you are setting this up on your desktop, visit
Kame using your browser. If this is on a
ssh -D1027 yourserver (via ipv4, of course) on your
local machine to create a SOCKS proxy, tell your browser to use
localhost:1027 as a SOCKS proxy, then visit
Kame in your browser. If the tortoise is
dancing, you’re done.
