Adding more IPv6 from the /64 tunnel from HE

After having the /64 and /48 IPv6 address allocation from HE, maybe you will wondering how to add more IPv6 from HE.
So, let’s try this simple tutorial :

Allocated IPv6 from HE is 2001:470:c:71::2/64
Allocated /64 IPv6 from HE is 2001:470:d:71::/64
Allocated /48 IPv6 from HE is 2001:470:f1bc::/48
Sample configuration in Linux :
# ifconfig sit0 up
# ifconfig sit0 inet6 tunnel ::66.220.18.42
# ifconfig sit1 up
# ifconfig sit1 inet6 add 2001:470:c:71::2/64
# route -A inet6 add ::/0 dev sit1
Adding more IPv6 :
# ifconfig sit1 inet6 add 2001:470:c:71::2:1/64
# ifconfig sit1 inet6 add 2001:470:c:71::2:2/64
# ifconfig sit1 inet6 add 2001:470:c:71::2:3/64
# ifconfig sit1 inet6 add 2001:470:c:71::2:4/64
# ifconfig sit1 inet6 add 2001:470:c:71::2:5/64
Adding the /64 block:
# ifconfig sit1 inet6 add 2001:470:d:71::/64
Adding the /48 block:
# ifconfig sit1 inet6 add 2001:470:f1bc::/48

To test if your IPv6 is available from the internet, you can use my Looking Glass and put your IPv6 in the box and choose ping6 and then click the Run Test. If it’s ping-able then your IPv6 is working. 🙂
