A while back I did some experimentation with IPv6 on my Cisco 2611xm. I was using a tunnel provided by Hurricane Electric, which worked well, but I had no firewall and that made me a bit nervous. A little while after I got things set up, I procured a Cisco ASA5505 with a 50 client license via eBay. My hope was that I could use the ASA for the firewall and the router to terminate the tunnel. As it turns out, this would have required a second IP address, because the ASA is not able to pass Protocol 41 traffic.
There have been a lot of articles floating around the net, lately, that mention how quickly we’re running out of IPv4 addresses. Seeing all of this got my interests in IPv6 rekindled. I’d been meaning to get it up and running on my network since I got my Cisco router, but it wasn’t until lately that I was really able to find enough information on the subject to know where to begin. I don’t have anywhere near enough knowledge to write up a tutorial, but I find it helpful and interesting to hear about other peoples’ experience with new technology. I hope it’s helpful for you to see how things went for me.
