Description John W. O'Brien 2016-11-02 23:57:05 UTC
See: https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/network-ipv6.html

Section 30.9.3. Connecting to a Provider

Excerpt --

The first /etc/rc.conf entry creates the generic tunneling interface gif0:


Next, configure that interface with the IPv4 addresses of the local and remote endpoints. Replace MY_IPv4_ADDR and REMOTE_IPv4_ADDR with the actual IPv4 addresses:

cloned_interfaces_gif0="MY_IPv4_ADDR REMOTE_IPv4_ADDR"

cloned_interfaces_gif0 does not work. Instead use:

create_args_gif0="tunnel MY_IPv4_ADDR REMOVE_IPv4_ADDR"

Hi John,
Which version of FreeBSD?
Sometimes there is the issue with legacy releases where the instructions are perfectly valid on those releases.

(In reply to Sevan Janiyan from comment #1)
Apologies, I was quick off the mark there & assumed another scenario with regards to legacy releases with verifying that was the case before I responded.
