[SOLVED] VPN connection: IPv6-IPv4?

Postby palimmo » 21 Apr 2015 16:48

Hi.
I'll try to describe my problem the best I can, considering I am not very experienced in networking and VPN.

My girlfriend needs to use the VPN connection to her university.
Initially was not difficult. Just followed this
https://wiki.uni-freiburg.de/rz/doku.php?id=vpn
and the connection was easily established.
In the previous flat.

Unfortunately at the moment I live in a flat with Unitymedia Internet provider with DS-LITE.
Unitymedia, as far as I have understood, offers only IPv6.

And this, if I'm right, is the reason why she cannot connect and use the VPN anymore: probably at the Uni they use only IPv4.

Any idea how to overcome this problem?

If you need further details I'll try to collect more.
Thanks!

I've been searching the web and found this (German): http://www.synology-forum.de/showthread ... 6-und-IPv4
Perhaps there's an answer in there.

thanks Schoelje.
Apparently no one has found a solution (as far as I understand their technical terms... and my poor knowledge of German helps me).
I'll try: is there a way to "convert" :twisted: my connection to IPv4? ...a tunnel somewhere or some strange trick?

Sorry, I don't know how to.
Perhaps you can ask Unitymedia's help desk?
