This page details the process for setting up a tunnel broker for IPv6 using Sixxs.net. For this example, we are going to use http://www.sixxs.net/ which provides tunnels to ISP-hosted servers in several countries.
All commands listed are run as a user with sufficient privileges. To obtain root privileges, enter
su - and supply the root user password.
- Request a new account at https://www.sixxs.net/main/ and select Signup for new users. See https://www.sixxs.net/faq/account/?faq=10steps for further details on creating and configuring your account, and requesting your first tunnel. Account requests are processed manually and may take a few days, so start early.
by running the following command:
yum install aiccu
- Update the file
/etc/aiccu.confby adding the sixxs.net username, password, and optionally, tunnel ID provided upon registration.
- Test your
aiccuconfiguration by running the following command:
- Next, start, and enable,
aiccuby running the following commands
/sbin/chkconfig aiccu on /sbin/service aiccu start
- If you provide sixxs.net a LinkedIn or Xing profile, you will be given enough credits to request a
/48subnet delegation immediately. Once approved, you may enable forwarding on your tunnel machine and assign addresses from your own
/48to the machines on your network to provide IPv6 connectivity to your own network.
