This webpage helps you connect your site to
6bone, worldwide experimental IPv6 network.
Please understand that 6bone is an experimental effort.
6bone may not give you what you want, but should be really fun and encouraging
if you are "geek"!
You will be connected to 6bone by using IPv6-over-IPv4 tunnel.
You will need the following items:
IPv6 traffic will be transmitted to your router by encapsulated
into IPv4 packet, and your router must decapsulate that and transmit to
- IPv4 permanent connection to your site
Note that your IPv4 address must be FIXED, i.e.
your address must not change day-to-day.
Some of cablemodem-based connection may not qualify.
- IPv4/v6 dual stack router capable of doing IPv6-over-IPv4 tunnel
The following would be just fine:
| IPv6 traffic to your site,
| encapsulated into IPv4 packet
dual stack router must decapsulate and send
| IPv6 packet to your network
===+================= your network
In IPv4 point of view, "dual stack router"
can be either the router for your site, or just a host.
| v4 connection | v4 connection
