September 16, 2011 | How To | No Comments|
So, it’s time to make the IPv4-IPv6 gateway, to walk in “another Internet”, to whom he will soon.
GO and register at http://go6.net/4105/register.asp
The kernel supports IPv6, ie it built with options INET6 (GENERIC kernel already supports this protocol)
So, install the client what they offer to download
Port: gateway6-5.0_2 Path: /usr/ports/net/gateway6 Info: Gateway6 Tunnel Setup Protocol Client - Free IPv6 tunnel B-deps: R-deps: WWW: http://www.go6.net/
cd /usr/ports/net/gateway6 make install clean
Edit the configuration file /usr/local/etc/gw6c.conf
userid = passwd =
There write your username and password are entered when registering on the site.
At this initial setup is completed, for further customization read the documentation.
server = broker.freenet6.net
broker.freenet6.net – is the server name to connect to (written in the letter at registration)
# Enable authentication auth_method = any # Write logs to syslogd log_syslog = 3
Now we have to run it
echo 'gateway6_enable = "YES"'>> /etc/rc.conf /usr/local/etc/rc.d/gateway6 start
