    SubjectTrivial IPv6-for-Fedora HOWTO

    So, thanks to David Woodhouse for showing me how to do this. IPv6
    appears to be very, very close to a Just Works(tm) state.

    These instructions are for Fedora Core 2 users, and describe how to set
    up IPv6 automatically tunnelling (6to4) on an IPv4 network. If you are
    stuck on an IPv4-only network (like most of us), this enables
    communication with IPv6 hosts quickly, easily, and transparently.

    (this HOWTO is archived at http://yyz.us/ipv6-fc2-howto.html)


    Simple setup:

    1) Append to /etc/sysconfig/network

    NETWORKING_IPV6=yes
    IPV6_DEFAULTDEV=tun6to4

    2) Append to /etc/sysconfig/ifcfg-eth0

    IPV6INIT=yes
    IPV6TO4INIT=yes

    3) Reboot or restart your network interface.

    That's it!



    If you have an iptables ipv4 firewall, you'll want to

    F1) allow ipv6 tunnelled packets to pass through to ip6tables, by
    allowing protocol 41

    iptables -A block -p 41 -j ACCEPT
    ("block" is a custom chain on my firewall)

    F2) duplicate your ipv4 firewall rules for ipv6, using ip6tables. Some
    things, like masquerade, are not applicable to ipv6.



    If you have an ipv4 NATing firewall, which serves as a router for a
    local network, you'll want to set up radvd and routing rules, so that
    your hosts autoconfigure ipv6 automatically based on your router's
    advertisements, and also so that your hosts truly speak native ipv6
    without tunneling [the router does the tunnel wrap/unwrap].

    R1.1) in /etc/radvd.conf, set "interface ethX" to reflect your router's
    local LAN interface (eth1 on my own firewall).

    R1.2) in radvd.conf, comment out "example of a standard prefix" prefix
    {} block

    R1.3) in radvd.conf, edit the line "prefix 0:0:0:1234::/64" and change
    "1234" to a network number of your choice.

    R1.4) in radvd.conf, edit line "Base6to4Interface ppp0" to reflect the
    interface doing the 6to4 tunnelling (eth0 on my own firewall).

    R2) add routing rules for the local network.

    # ip -6 route add 2002:184a:9ba9:1010::/64 dev eth1
    # ip -6 addr add 2002:184a:9ba9:1010::1 dev eth1

    You cat get the 2002:... address (your 6to4 address, formed from your
    ipv4 address) from your ifconfig. In this example, "eth1" is my local
    LAN interface. eth0 is the interface to my ISP (DSL modem).

    Here is what my ifconfig output looks like, after everything is set up
    on my router/firewall:
