OpenVPN via ipv6

Hello guys. I want to ask your advise. I'm not big specialist at networking and I'll really appreciate your recommendations.

Before joining LES I setup 6to4 tunnel on my router, so I can access ipv6 resources directly. But then I find out, that LES provide external IP with port forwarding. Is it will be good idea to reconfigure openvpn to use ipv6 remote?
I see some advantages here:
1. I'll can route traffic via 443 port
2. Maybe it will be faster
3. Why use ipv4 with port forwarding if I have ipv6?

P.S. Nyr thank you a lot. You save me a lot of time with your script!

Re: OpenVPN via ipv6

My primary LES is on an HE.NET IPv6 tunnel.  So far, I have been unable to route any of that /80 to work over OpenVPN.

Re: OpenVPN via ipv6

On an old box I had IPv6 from he.net and OpenVPN would correctly assign a VPN client with an IPv6 address. I've used Nyr's OpenVPN installer, which works fine but doesn't assign an IPv6 address, the server has a /112. Have I missed something with the script, or should I just do a manual install of OpenVPN.

Re: OpenVPN via ipv6

Nyr's script is designed specifically to NOT assign IPv6.

Re: OpenVPN via ipv6

That script basically does everything for you for a NAT VPS, it was written (and I dont think maintained now) by a good helpful member of the community who has not been active for quite some time now, it is not something I can offer any direct support on sorry.

Re: OpenVPN via ipv6

No problem, I'll do it the old fashioned way. A bigger problem appears to be that I can't get 3 of 5 boxes to recognise that Tun has been turned on in the control panel. I'll rebuild one and report back.
