Set Up an IPv6 6rd Tunnel Connection
The 6rd protocol makes it possible to deploy IPv6 to sites using a service provider’s IPv4 network. 6rd uses the
service provider’s own IPv6 address prefix. This limits the operational domain of 6rd to the service provider’s network
and is under direct control of the service provider. The IPv6 service that is provided is equivalent to native IPv6.
The 6rd mechanism relies on an algorithmic mapping between the IPv6 and IPv4 addresses that are assigned for
use within the service provider’s network. This mapping allows for automatic determination of IPv4 tunnel endpoints
from IPv6 prefixes, enabling stateless operation of 6rd.
To set up an IPv6 6rd tunnel connection:
1.
Launch a web browser from a computer or WiFi device that is connected to the network.
2.
Enter http://www.routerlogin.net.
A login window opens.
3.
Enter the router user name and password.
The user name is admin. The default password is password. The user name and password are case-sensitive.
The BASIC Home page displays.
