IPv6 Internet access from IPv4 (BSNL) DSL Connection

As of now AFAIK BSNL, the largest ISP in India, is not providing IPv6 Internet to DSL home users. So here is a cool way to connect to IPv6 Internet using a IPv4 DSL connection.

I have a BSNL DSL Broadband connection with dynamic IPv4 address with NAT.
Here I will demonstrate a way to access IPv6 Internet using a IPv6-over-IPv4 tunnel from tunnel broker Hurrican Electric. I am running Ubuntu Linux 14.04.


Signup with any IPv6 tunnel brokers in internet like Hurrican Electric or SixxS. Create a regular IPv6 tunnel. Add v4tunnel interface configuration in our computer.
