To allow hosts and networks using 6to4 addresses to exchange traffic with hosts using “native” IPv6 addresses, “relay routers” have been established.

6to4 IPv6 Tunneling

Hi Jeremy, Thanks for another great article! One reason is your adapter does not support this feature. By nature, a tunnel between a 6to4 router and 6to4 relay router is insecure.

Each packet header in the flow has a source 6to4—derived address and destination 6to4— derived address. More information about 6to4 routing is available from the following sources. The relay router then sends the now IPv6—only packets onto the IPv6 network, where the packets are ultimately retrieved by a router at Site B.

How to configure IPv6 Automatic 6to4 Tunneling |

Please 6fo4 the Command Prompt and run as administrator, c. I would request for further revision if any in this and other artcles from your side. This approach lets organizations slowly migrate to an IPv6 infrastructure without having to spend excessive time and financial resources to convert to the new infrastructure.


For example, you might enable 6to4 relay router support on a campus network that consists of isolated 6to4 sites and native IPv6 sites. I wish to create a home network involving two or more computers and a printer. 6to44, it is intended only as a transition mechanism and is not meant to be used permanently.

Topology of the 6to4 tunnel 6to4 addressing, including the format of the advertisement Description of packet flow across a 6to4 tunnel Topology of a tunnel between a 6to4 router and 6to4 relay router Points to consider before you configure 6to4 relay router support.

A variant called IPv6 rapid deployment “6rd” uses the same basic principles as 6to4 but uses a relay operated by the 6rd user’s ISP for traffic in both directions. I have the same question Dynamic multipoint IPv6 tunnels are another migration technique we can use. What would you need to allow connectivity to the IPv4 world?

6to4 as a Transition Mechanism

One way to connect netwokr IPv6 LANs would be to configure individual point-to-point IPv6-in-IPv4 tunnels, so that each site would have an individual tunnel interface to reach every other site. Can you please explain this behavior? If the host is configured to forward packets for other clients, often a local network, it is then a router.

Each site has configured a router with an external connection to an IPv4 network. There are three key components relevant to 6to4: R1 config ipv6 route For example, the global IPv4 address Due to unsolvable operational problems, this use has been deprecated.

It was my first hands on ipv6. When a site using 6to4 has a fixed global IPv4 address, its 6to4 IPv6 prefix is also fixed. This interface must provide the external connection to the IPv4 network. The address has the following form. Like many other transition mechanisms, it enables encapsulation of IPv6 packets into IPv4 for transport across an IPv4 network.
