How would I create and connect an IPv6 tunnel in DO?

January 11, 2015 1.1k views

As my ISP hasn't deployed IPv6 yet, I'm looking into setting up my own tunnel from my own IPv6 capable router to an IPv6 capable droplet. I've looked into Hurricane Electric, although I would much rather like a tunnel endpoint that resolves to the UK.

I've seen this guide which covers in general what I would like to do (although I'd like to set the tunnel up on my router). However, I note that we only receive a /124 as configurable addresses in private networking, not a /64.

How would I be able to set such a tunnel up on a droplet – and, optionally, secure it with IPSec?
