or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Dancing Kame
Note: This will apparently not work if you’re behind a NAT. I had to plug my machine directly into my cable modem to get it to work.
Open up a terminal. Type
/sbin/ifconfig -a to list your devices. You should see something like:
mtu 1500 inet6 fe80::203:93ff:fe67:80b2%en0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x4 ether 00:03:93:67:80:b2 inet 192.168.1.101 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255 media: autoselect (none) status: active
Find the one that says “status: active”, usually this is
en0. If it’s not, be sure to replace en0 with whatever it is in later instructions
sudo ip6config start-v6 en0; sudo ip6config start-stf en0
Argh! Why don’t they turn this on by default? Who’s running this botched IPv6 transition?
But hey, I can see the dancing turtle. It’s not all bad.
Cool! Unfortunately it doesn’t work over my Airport base station. My cable modem is in another room and I’m not using any Ethernet cables.
