I'm trying to set up gogoc in order to allow my computer to be accessible via SSH using a Freenet6 Tunnel Broker.

Here are the relevant parts of my /etc/gogoc/gogoc.conf:


After starting the service: sudo service gogoc start

It all seems to be working correctly, here is the /var/log/gogoc/gogoc.log:

gogoc: Your IPv6 address is 2001:05c0:1400:000b:0000:0000:0000:221f.
gogoc: Your IPv6 DNS address is 2001:4860:4860:0000:0000:0000:0000:8888.

sudo ifconfig | grep inet6 output:

inet6 addr: fe80::d267:e5ff:fe07:5172/64 Scope:Link
inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
inet6 addr: fe80::c0ef:88ff:fe39:e8f4/64 Scope:Link
inet6 addr: 2001:5c0:1400:b::221f/128 Scope:Global

However if I try to SSH from another machine:

ssh -6 [linux_user]@[net6_user].amsterdam.freenet6.net

I get the following error message:

ssh: Could not resolve hostname [net6_user].amsterdam.freenet6.net: Name or service not known

I have installed and running openssh and I use Ubuntu 12.04

Any idea what I could be missing here?


According to the doc, your tunnel endpoint automatically gets a name like userid.broker.freenet6.net:

The FQDN associated with authenticated tunnels uses the format userid.broker.freenet6.net, where userid is the name of the end-user's account. A user registered under “incredibleipv6” would have this DNS entry: incredibleipv6.broker.freenet6.net

  • A little more info on why you think that would certainly increase the quality and credibility of this answer. – Austin T French Aug 25 '13 at 1:47
