I recently visited telnet://towel.blinkenlights.nl and it said that to unlock more artwork and colours, I need to visit it using ipv6. But I have an ipv4 connection and can't use ipv6.

So, I am looking for ways to fake an ipv6 connection to the site. How do I do it?

    You might be able to setup some form of IPv6 tunnel. So your machine would be using IPv6 if your connection doesn't support it by default.

  • @Seth Thanks for the prompt response! Could you please elaborate the procedure of setting up an ipv6 tunnel?

  • No, I haven't done it because I never needed to. An alternative might be to use a proxy. But doing that using telnet might be hard.

    You could find what you're looking for by googling ipv4 to ipv6. It'll give you vpn services. It is not possible to fake it otherwise because ipv6 is a network protocol, not a statistic.

If you want an IPv6 address, you need to contact your ISP and find out if they can give you a public IPv6 address. Depending on where you live this might be impossible until ISPs adopt IPv6 support.
