IPv6-over-IPv4: "RTNETLINK answers: No route to host"-Error

  1. Hello,

    I'm trying to setup a 6to4-tunnel provided by sixxs.net on my
    gentoo-Linux-box (Kernel
    When I follow the instructions found here:


    I get the following error:

    # ip tunnel add sixxs mode sit local remote
    # ip link set sixxs up
    # ip link set mtu 1280 dev sixxs
    # ip tunnel change sixxs ttl 64
    # ip -6 addr add 2001:6f8:900:ff::2 dev sixxs
    # ip -6 ro add default via 2001:6f8:900:ff::1 dev sixxs
    RTNETLINK answers: No route to host

    I checked every possible thing, but something still must be wrong. I can set
    up a tunnel when I boot into winXP, so protocol 41 is routed.

    Anyone any idea?
