IPv6 BGP Tunnel

SnapServ Mathis is offering free IPv6 BGP tunnels for research / education purposes to a select amount of people. Order this free service, provide us with your contact data and fill out the application form. We will contact you within a few days by either accepting or declining your request. The tunnel itself will work by adding IPv6 addresses (we will provide an appropriate subnet) onto a GRE tunnel between your and our router, which will then be used for establishing an BGP session. Prefix filters will be automatically generated based on your IRR data every night - we do not accept any AS-SETs by default and will stick to generating filters based on your ASN. Please use for latency tests before submitting your order.
