Tutorial: Setting up 6in4 IPv6 on an Ubuntu router

Despite lack of ISP support, I gave myself IPv6 network access by making my router switch IPv6 packets over an 6in4 tunnel. My tunnel provider is Hurricane Electric.

This tutorial is about setting up IPv6 tunnelling and routing, NDP router advertisement and tackling dynamic address. Not all part of this tutorial will fit your needs.

Finally the images are ready! Here are the links:

On top of basic Raspbian Server Edition installation with full jessie updates, I have added:

  • apache2, libapache2-mod-php5, mariadb-server: A complete LAMP stack
  • avahi-daemon: Bonjour, in order to make remote management easier
  • watchdog, bcm2708-wdog: Watchdog daemon

Raspbian Server Edition forks: NK and AC

I have a thing of running my Raspberry Pi headless, using Raspbian Server Edition. Current versions of Raspbian Server Edition is sort of old now, though.

I am preparing two forks of Raspbian Server Edition, both based on upstream version 2.5:

  • RSE 2.5NK: Based on RSE 2.5, latest bootloader, kernel is from rpi-update.
  • RSE 2.5AC: Based on RSE 2.5, latest bootloader, kernel have Wolfson Audio Card support.
  • RSE 2.5NK+: Based on NK, added command-line GPIO utilities, LAMP stack and mod_suexec for apache. Intended to be used as a home automation hub.
  • RSE 2.5AC+: Like NK+, but based on AC kernel. Intended to be used as a DLNA/AirPlay target or multipurpose guitar effect stompbox.

Stuff is still being assembled, and I will publish torrents and download links once it is finished.
