HE IPv6 Tunnel Help


Anyone know how to set up a HE IPv6 Tunnel?  I'm having issues with it when I try to get it up and running on my vps..

This is my current set up in the interfaces file:

auto he-ipv6
iface he-ipv6 inet6 v4tunnel
        address 2001:470:1f0e:683::2
        netmask 64
        ttl 255
        gateway 2001:470:1f0e:683::2

This is the information for the tunnel:

Client IPv6: 2001:470:1f0e:683::2/64
Server IPv4:
Server IPv6: 2001:470:1f0e:683::1/64

I get this when I try to get it to connect:

[email protected]:~# ifup he-ipv6
add tunnel "sit0" failed: No such device

Can anyone help me get this running?  I'm using Ubuntu 14.04.

Thanks for your help!


If you are using an OpenVZ vps, here's a guide I wrote for making a 6in4 tunnel.


sit adapter can't be used in OpenVZ afaik


You can download the precompiled tb_userspace application with the example configuration from @Conan's tutorial at my mirror: http://kokakukidotai.insomnia247.nl/ipv6...rspace.zip

1. Download
2. Extract
3. Move files into correct directories
4. Edit the startup script with the IP ranges and so on
5. Set correct chmod for both files

And then start the script to get your tunnel up.


Thanks for helping me, let me see if this will work! Smile
Hopefully this will work and get the tunnel working!
