Solved: IPv6 not working
> Hi. Title says all. I have a Windows XP Dekstop and a Windows 7 Laptop. The desktop is linked to a TP-Link TL-WR340GD Router via Ethernet cable, while the laptop is linked to the router via wireless connection. The router is, in turn, connected to a PPPoE modem to acces the internet.

> Even though the connection on my laptop has IPv6 enabled, I can't access any IPv6 adresses (nor use Messenger's Remote Assistance - it says Teredo has been deactivated) like http://www.ipv6.sixxs.net/ .

> How can I enable IPv6 on my computers/router/modem?
> Well... How can I use the Remote Assistance? would be a more accurate question. Accessing IPv6 adresses isn't quite a priority right now.

> If it helps: Here's my laptop ipconfig (translated, as I'm using a brazilian OS):

Is your ISP supporting IPv6 yet? You can only use IPv6 if your ISP supports it.

My understanding is that most ISPs in the Americas (North and South) have yet to roll out IPv6. Asia, particularly Japan, seems to be the only area where IPv6 is gaining acceptance.

> Problem is, how can I use Remote Assistance if I don't have IPv6 activated? I get a "The machine's administrator has de-activated Teredo locally" error when I try offering assistance.

Teredo is a protocol to tunnel IPv6 over IPv4 and would used only if you have a remote IPv6 system to connect to through a Teredo server. In most cases, it's not needed.

Since you don't have access to an IPv6 network, you can't access IPv6 addresses. You need use IPv4 for Remote Assistance since that's the network you are on. If fact, you could disable IPv6 on your laptop without causing any problems.

I believe that the Vista requester does not have the Remote Assistance Exception selected in the Windows firewall for a Public network or has another firewall blocking the Windows 7 from connecting. I am basing this mostly on my reading of Remote Assistance and Resulting Internet Communication in Windows Vista.
