Teredo tunnels An adapter is a virtual device that acts as a translator between IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Nowadays, most computers are connected to the Internet using an IPv4 connection without direct (local) connection to IPv6 networks. This problem can be solved by using Teredo Tunneling technology, which allows an IPv4 network to communicate with an IPv6 network and vice versa. Teredo Tunneling is a temporary solution that is disabled when IPv6 connectivity becomes natural on the network.
In this guide, I will show you how to install Teredo Tunneling on Windows 8, 7 and Vista.
