IPv6 Support


The internet protocol of next generation (IPv6) is available in the StudNet. You get the IP addresses automatically by login via PPTP VPN connection (internet login). When you login normally, you get a address with dynamic changing IPv6 prefix. If you want to get a static IPv6 address space, you must add -ip1 to the user name (zxxxxx-ip1). Then the system gives you always the same IPv6 /64 prefix and you can use it at the interface. Furthermore, the system routes another /64 prefix on the PPP device. At this the 64. bit of IPv6 address is increased by one.

Example with login zxxxxx-ip1:

2a00:5ba0:8000:1872::/64 on the interface, addresses are assigned automatically
(Router Advertisement)
2a00:5ba0:8000:1873::/64 as route on the interface

In this example the prefix 2a00:5ba0:8000:1873::/64 can be used in a own IPv6 subnetwork.

Test of IPv6 Connection

Currently only few providers have converted their server services completely to IPv6. The web page of RIPE is automatically displayed via IPv6. When you open http://www.ripe.net and you see at the right side a address beginning with 2a00:5ba0:8000, you see this page via IPv6.

Furthermore, the following big web pages are attainable via IPv6:

There are web pages for test IPv6 connection on the internet:
