The following is a short summary guide on making a ipv6 tunnel via http://gogonet.gogo6.com/ work on Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala, for those of us who are not on 10.10 yet.
It makes no assumptions about whether tunneling instead of going generic IPv6 is a good thing to do, or whether it just makes us become lazy and put up with not having IPv6.
Also, it makes no statement about the quality of gogo6/freenet6 tunnels in comparison to other brokers like
The guide is completely based on this one – which i found just works straight forward. Thanks for sharing:
Get a freenet6 account here:
# apt-get install gw6c radvd # /etc/init.d/radvd stop # vi /etc/gw6c/gw6c.conf like so: userid=USERID passwd=PASSWORD server=broker.freenet6.net auth_method=any prefixlen=64 template=linux if_tunnel_v6v4=freenet6 if_tunnel_v6udpv4=freenet6 if_prefix=eth0 (CHANGE IF NEEDED) keepalive=yes keepalive_interval=10 host_type=router (CHANGE TO host IF 1 BOX) then do # /etc/init.d/gw6c restart
On first attempt of starting gw6c, i m getting a short re-negotiate of broker:
root@sbut:/home/sebastian/gogoc-1_2-RELEASE# /etc/init.d/gw6c restart * Restarting Gateway6 Client gw6c No /usr/sbin/gw6c found running; none killed. Gateway6 Client v6.0-RELEASE build Sep 7 2009-13:59:46 Built on ///Linux palmer 2.6.24-24-server #1 SMP Wed Apr 15 16:36:01 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux/// ).ceived a TSP redirection message from Gateway6 broker.freenet6.net (1200 Redirection The Gateway6 redirection list is [ sydney.freenet6.net, amsterdam.freenet6.net, montreal.freenet6.net ]. The optimized Gateway6 redirection list is [ amsterdam.freenet6.net, montreal.freenet6.net, sydney.freenet6.net ]. Received data is invalid. Last status context is: TSP authentication. Finished.
After a retry, everything is fine:

You might want to put the best gateway, in my case amsterdam.freenet6.net, into the config file above.
