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.
sudo ip6config start-v6 all; sudo ip6config start-stf all
(stf is 6to4, a way of encoding IPv6 packets so they can go over the current IPv4 Internet.) Visit http://[3ffe:501:4819:2000:210:f3ff:fe03:4d0]/ in your web browser. If you see a dancing turtle, congratulations you’ve joined the currently completely useless IPv6 Internet.
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.
