Ipv6 with Hurricane Electric

From ImageStream Router Documentation

Jump to: navigation, search



Currently it is difficult to obtain true IPV6 allocations from Internet providers. This document describes how to configure an ImageStream router to work with an IPV6 tunnel broker. By using a IPV4 to IPV6 tunnel customers can gain experience with IPV6 and possibly do limited deployments without needing Ipv6 support from existing Internet providers.


Typical Network configuration
  • The router must be running at least Imagestream Linux 4.2.11
  • A Hurricane Electric user Account(provided for free from ipv6.he.net)
  • The router must not be using Gated.
  • The router must be running zebra


Router Configuration
The following configuration items are needed.
  • The Remote/Server Ipv4 address (from Hurricane Electric)
  • The Local Ipv4 address of the router
  • The Remote/Server IPv6 address (from Hurricane Electric)
  • The Local Ipv6 address (from Hurricane Electric)
  • The Routed Ipv6 netblock (from Hurricane Electric)
  • The interface you wish to allocate to your Ipv6 segment

Network interface Configuration (Wan.conf)
 ip tunnel add he-ipv6 mode sit remote local ttl 255
 ip link set he-ipv6 up
 ip addr add 2001:470:1f10:323::2/64 dev he-ipv6
 ip route add ::/0 dev he-ipv6
Zebra Routing configuration
 interface eth1
 ipv6 address 2001:470:1f11:123::1/64
 no ipv6 nd suppress-ra
 ipv6 nd prefix 2001:470:1f11:123::/64
