Once you've signed up with TunnelBroker.net, their "tunnel details" page will supply you with information about your tunnel: IPv6 Tunnel Endpoints - Server IPv4 Address: 209.51.181.2 - Server IPv6 Address: 2001:470:1f3a:1178::1 /64 - Client IPv6 Address: 2001:470:1f3a:1178::2 /64 Routed IPv6 Prefixes - Routed /64: 2001:470:1f3a:1178:: /64 ...

Your magazine is right. IPv6 address consists of two parts: network prefix and host address. If host address is not assigned, then computer autogenerates it, usually by using MAC address. Which means your IP includes something that uniquely identifies you, not depending on what network you are using. See for example Wikipedia page for more information. ...

v6v4tunnel is a simple 6in4 tunnel, using IPv6 in IPv4 proto-41 packets as defined in RFC 4213 ("host-to-router"). Sometimes this is called a "Protocol 41" tunnel. This tunnel type is used by Tunnelbroker and other IPv6 tunnel providers. The Linux equivalent is a sit tunnel interface. portproxy is a transport-layer proxy that listens for TCP connections ...

Since you're using 6to4 you will have a whole /48 available to you. The structure of the address is as follows (probably including more detail than necessary for you, but just to be on the safe side): IPv6 addresses are in hexadecimal 2002 is the fixed prefix for 6to4 (16 bits) 5dd1:5379 is your IPv4 address written in hexadecimal (2 * 16 bits) Everything ...

There is no "private" IP addresses in IPv6. (There is LinkLocal, but that is a bit different). NAT Will no longer exist. Most companies trialing it, such as comcast, are giving out 32 bit addresses to each consumer modem. that would give you 4 billion IP addresses to use with your connection. (right about how many IPv4 Addresses there are in the world ...

There are only public IP addresses in IPv6. Thus, no NATing will be required at all. The smallest block of IPs possible will be in the thousands, not just a few. Each person will be allocated thousands of IPv6 addresses. There will be enough IPv6 addresses for every molecule on the face of the earth to have its own address (not inside the earth as well, ...
