IPv6 and BGP adventure
This post will be about my ‘adventure’ of getting my own AS number, IPv6 subnet, and peering with Hurricane Electric to announce my IPv6 subnet over a 6to4 tunnel.
I started to chat with someone on Discord about getting my own IPv6 subnet. They’re not that expensive. I got mine from SnapServ. I purchased a /44 IPv6 subnet and an Autonomous System Number.
After having successfully set-up a 6to4 tunnel with Hurricane Electric before, I decided to sign up for a BGP tunnel, so I can use my own IP address space.
I got my ASN and /44 subnet from SnapServ. A /44 IPv6 subnet is 16 /48 subnets, and the /44 is that smallest that they had. It’s very affordable.
Currently I’m getting packet drops from their tunnel… So we will see how it goes.
For now: made two tickets, got ignored on both my their support staff.
