Finally figured out how to get a 6rd tunnel setup with Charter. My problem was that 1) I wasn’t paying attention to the examples and 2) I have my IPv6 router behind an IPv4 only router. So unlike the examples, I needed to use the private IP address instead of the public for the tunnel. […]

Since getting IPv6 up and running, I’ve been trying to figure out a way to map domain names to hosts no matter if they have statically assigned addresses or dhcp/radv generated ones. Additionally, I didn’t want to purchase a new domain. Instead I opted to create a new subdomain and delegated authority to my home […]

Last November we moved from a rental home into a home of our own. Unfortunately, the old woman before us never had cable television or internet and so we had to wait a month before the ISP was able to dig in a line and hook us up. Now that we have internet, I’ve finally […]

Updates HE public IP records for your tunnel (for instance at the coffee shop), finds the first available interface that is connected and creates a v6v4tunnel using that IP. See script for where you need to edit. function fastpingtest { $ping = New-Object System.Net.NetworkInformation.Ping; $ping.Send(“8.8.8.8”, 1000).status -eq “success”; } $endtime = [datetime]::Now.AddMinutes(1); $mapipv6 = $false; […]

Besides, what happens when you want to route only a portion of the block to one place? Example usage: ipv6range.ps1 […]
