We’re not here to make the most of your Raspberry Pi, so if you’re looking for an easy way to add IPv6 to your network, this guide is for you.
The Raspberry Pi is an open source, cheap, and relatively easy to use computer that you can build on top of.
This article will walk you through the process of setting up IPv6 over the network using the Pi’s GPIO interface.
The Pi is a single-board computer.
For the purposes of this guide, we’re only going to be concerned with the Raspberry Pi Zero, which has a Pi 3, and which will be using the GPIO interface to connect to the network.
If you’re on a Mac or Windows computer, we recommend checking out our guide to configuring the Pi for IPv6.
We’ll also be using a RaspberryPi Zero to test the installation of IPv6 and will also be building an Ethernet adapter so that we can connect the Pi to the Internet.
First, download the Pi source code from Github and build a directory to store the source code.
Now, download and install the RaspberryPi GPIO adapter software.
If you haven’t done this already, open a terminal window, enter “sudo apt-get install python-gpio” and hit enter.
In the terminal window that opens, enter: sudo gpio-adapter update sudo gpi-adapters update Now, enter the following command in the terminal: sudo update-rc.d pi-gpios gpioadapter Now, you should see a message saying: “Updating to version 1.0.0 of the Raspberry PI GPIO Adapter software.
You can verify that the update has successfully completed by typing: sudo dmesg” Now, we’ll configure the Pi as a DHCP server and enable DHCP on the Pi.
To enable DHCP, type: sudo adduser pi sudo addgroup pi sudo useradd pi Now, in the Pi configuration, make sure that the “Networking” option is enabled.
You’ll need to enter the IP address that you want to assign to your RaspberryPi.
Type in: 192.168.1.1, and then hit enter to enter into the console.
You’ll then be prompted to enter a username and password for your RaspberryPI.
Enter the password you’ve provided and hit return.
Then, to assign a static IP address to the Pi, type in 192.0, and enter the network address.
Now, go to the IP-address-list and enter 192.192.1 for the static address.
It should look like this: 192.*.*.0.* The IP-number for your Pi should be displayed on the screen.
Now, type the following commands in the console: sudo pppd ip 188.8.131.52 To enable DHCP for your router, type this: sudo router add netmask 192.
172.10.*.* To enable IPv6 connectivity for your routers, type these commands: sudo ip6tables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE sudo ip-resolve 192.2.*.*/192.168.*/24 The following command should give you a list of your routers.
Finally, you can test that your router is properly connected.
Type in the following in the command line: sudo dhcpcd -t ifconfig 192.3.*.*, 192.*.*.*, 255.255.255.* The network interface will now show up on the Raspberry pi.
As you can see, it is connected to 192.4.1.* and 192.6.*.* as shown below: 192*.*.192.*.6 You should see an IP address of 192.24.1* and 192.**.* will now appear on the other side of the Pi: 192**.*.20.*.12 Now, open the file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ipv6 to configure your Raspberry pi as a IPv6 router.
Edit the line that says: ip6_resolve_default_address = 192.8.*.* Then save and exit the file.
Now go back to the /etc and enter this in the appropriate line: # Change the default address of your network to the specified ip6 address.
# This is for testing purposes only.
This is an example of the default # address.
If your network is configured for IPv4, then it should be the same # as above.
# If your netmask is not the default, it will be automatically changed to the default.
# You can change this line if you need to.
# ip6netmask = 192.**.192.* .# # You should now be able to ping your router and see it show up as a host on your network.
This will take a while, so be patient. Before
