Tunnel from IPv6 Tunnelbroker


If you use SixXS as your IPv6 tunnelbroker the procedure to configure Bering-uClibc 4.x is as follows:

  • Make sure you have the tun kernel Module loaded. Note that this relies on the crc32 kernel Module.
  • Configure Shorewall to accept the SixXS tunnel traffic. Add the following to /etc/shorewall/rules:
SixXS(ACCEPT)   fw      net
  • Install the aiccu.lrp Package and configure it using lrcfg.
    • Specify your own username and password.
    • Specify the relevant protocol and server. For example:
protocol tic
  • Start the aiccu daemon:
svi aiccu start
  • Check for error messages in /var/log/syslog
  • If all is well, you should have a new network interface called "sixxs" which is effectively the IPv6 equivalent of your external IPv4 interface (e.g. eth0 or ppp0).
  • In the event of problems you may find the "test" mode of the "aiccu" command useful.
