IPv6 Certification Tests for individuals, Hurricane Electric IPv6 Certification

Its quite some time i am using IPv6 in my setup. I gave some presentation on IPv6 also.

I was looking for some certification tests for IPv6 and i cam across this:

For individuals : http://ipv6.he.net/certification/cert-main.php

they have many levels, first level some basic questions, passed all.

For second level we need to do some work . Today i got the second level cleared , the "Explorer" certification.


We need to enable IPv6 on client machine.

In my office we have following setup:

                 public IP
Internet----------Router/firewall( NAT)-------------PC1(local ip)

The tunnel has to be created with Public IP, using their another free service

http://www.tunnelbroker.net/

you will give : your public IP , and remote IP ( you can select from the list)

it will create the tunnel. Now got to your client machine , I have Fedora core 16 client machine . In website for all type of OS, you can get the commands: For me following is valid :

Linux-router



modprobe ipv6
ip tunnel add he-ipv6 mode sit remote 230.X.X.X local 192.X.X.X ttl 255
ip link set he-ipv6 up
ip addr add 2001:X:X:X::2/64 dev he-ipv6
ip route add ::/0 dev he-ipv6
ip -f inet6 addr


Make sure that the Local IP is the NAT actual Client IP and not the public IP as given in the example configuration of website.

Now ping

 ping6 ipv6.google.com -> should work fine

 go to http://test-ipv6.com/ and see if they can detect your IPv6 address.


Keep Exploring, Keep Learning !!!
