Common Problems When Deploying IPv6

This section describes issues and problems that you might encounter while planning and deploying IPv6 at your site. For actual planning tasks, refer to Chapter 2, Considerations When Using IPv6 Addresses.

IPv4 Router Cannot Be Upgraded to IPv6

If your existing equipment cannot be upgraded, you might have to purchase IPv6-ready equipment. Check the manufacturers' documentation for any equipment-specific procedures you might have to perform to support IPv6.

Certain IPv4 routers cannot be upgraded for IPv6 support. If this situation applies to your topology, physically wire an IPv6 router next to the IPv4 router. Then, you can tunnel from the IPv6 router over the IPv4 router. For tasks for configuring tunnels, refer to Tunnel Configuration and Administration With the dladm Command.

Problems After Upgrading Services to IPv6

You might encounter the following situations when preparing services for IPv6 support:

Current ISP Does Not Support IPv6

If you want to deploy IPv6 but your current ISP does not offer IPv6 addressing, consider the following alternatives to changing ISPs:

Security Issues When Tunneling to a 6to4 Relay Router

By nature, a tunnel between a 6to4 router and a 6to4 relay router is insecure. Security problems, such as the following, are inherent in such a tunnel:

These problems and other security issues that are inherent with 6to4 relay routers are explained in the Internet Draft, Security Considerations for 6to4. Generally, you should consider enabling support for 6to4 relay routers for the following reasons only:
