one of the first and simple methods is 6To4 Tunnel, which it can help you to Transform IPv6 via IPv4 network ( Encapsulate IPv6 through IPv4 ), in this case you are able to setup a 6to4 tunnel with IPv4 Address and then transfer and forward IPv6 Traffic.

according to attached image you can see there are two remote sites which they are decide to using IPv6 and have IPv4 for internet connections.


Step 1 - we have to setup 6to4 Tunnel to make a session between two sites.

Interface 6to4 add local-address= remote-address=
