Depressed my ASA 5505 can't do IPV6 tunnels

itdaddyitdaddy Senior MemberMember Posts: 2,089 ■■■■□□□□□□
The ASAs don't support basic tunnels, they only support IPSec tunnels (The ASA doesn't run IOS). It would be neat if supported IPSec tunnels and then I'd try out my 5505 (If someone at wants to try this I'm game to beta it). In the mean time I'm IPv4 only at home.
read the above from a forum..they are big into ipv6 tunneling...I so pissed...
do not get an ASA 5505 if you want to do a tunnel to an IPV6 relay and access the ipv6 world. you can do it with say a cisco router that has ipv6. but not and ASA 5505..
I bought it thinking it would what lesson I learned....very disapointed in cisco or myself for that matter ASSUMing it would know what they say about assuming

Arse out of me......grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

can someone just lie to me and says it works give me a fake config and i try it and magically it works grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

    I am running ASA 5505 with 7.2(4) software version
    Everyone on the forum says can you help email is [email protected] I cannot for the life of me find any good references..I really want to get this going..if you have time I can send you my config thru the email if you have time so I can see how to config my tunnel.and I have some questions to ask you on how it all works. like do i have have clients on my LAN config with ipv6 addresses as well as ipv4?
    stuff like that. and will i be able to have both ipv4 and ipv6 access?

    I just read abunch on hurricane electric forum saying you have to put a router in front
    of the asa 5505 which i think is crap! I should be able to tunnel to but they say doesnt have IPSEC tunnel capablity. what do you think Edtheland lay it on me brother!

    thanks for replying..

    Just curious -- exactly why is that crap?

    If you don't have a router in front of your ASA, then why don't you tunnel from a router BEHIND your ASA?

    it is crap becuase it is so much setup. I mean the asa 5505 should work as a front-end/bridgehead type comes with ipv6 cabability and even routing why doesnt it is suppose to have tons of bells and whistles...

    on the second not note you said..You mean I can put it behind it? hum! that is still a bunch of setup but I guess what I make s static entry to the router behind it to portforward ipv6 traffice to the tunnel setup on my SOHO 831?

    I guess I just dont have enough info on how to do this i guess it will be piece work.

    I have not found anyone who has done this and I dont know where to look?
    I have just found nay sayers. So mike I can static route ipv6 to my inside
    and to the 831 soho and then tunnel from there? to
    and do I have to have IPV6 clients or does the 831 translate my ipv4 addresses to ipv6 addresses

    thank EdTheLand I am so gullible you reallygotme! man what a dork I am

    thanks guys
