This tunnel broker is provided by JANET for members of the UK Higher Education community. It supports creating IPv6 tunnels over the existing IPv4 infrastructure using either the Tunnel Setup Protocol (TSP) client, or by using this website.
- We recommend using the TSP Client to configure the tunnels.
- The web interface simply configures a point-to-point IPv6-over-IPv4 tunnel, which requires a public IP address and IP protocol 41 to be allowed through your firewall (if you are using one). This method is probably best suited to more advanced users without Network Address Translation (NAT).
- The TSP client includes features for tunnelling through NAT devices (e.g. if your IP address is 10.x.x.x or 192.168.x.x). The TSP Client must also be used if you wish to have a block of IPv6 address routed towards you (/64s and /56s are available), which you can then route onwards.
Discussion of this service is encouraged on the JISCMail IPv6 Users mailing list.
