I am trying to understand meaning, setup and difference between IPv4 Compatible Tunnel vs. 6to4 Tunnel.
found some basic understanding http://www.cciecandidate.com/?p=592
Looking for clear and deep understanding.
Thanks a lot
one cent from my search:
Automatic 6to4 Tunnels
routers are not configured in pairs
IPv4 address embedded in the IPv6 address is used to find the other end of the automatic tunnel
may be configured on a border router in an isolated IPv6 network
can be configured between border-routers or between a border-router and a host
creates a tunnel on a per-packet basis
tunnel destination is determined by the IPv4 address of the border router
tunnel destination is automatically determined by the IPv4 address
use IPv4-compatible IPv6 addresses
easy method to create tunnels for IPv6 over IPv4
Technique does not scale for large networks.
It is easy.
Suppose you were in a spa.
v4 = man
v6 = woman
IPv4 compatible address = mixed bathing
6to4 = woman with male costume
this seems intersting, could be please throw some more light.
