    Hi all, I'm copying my own post (nearly) verbatim to Hurricane Electric's forum.

    Running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.

    Given the suggestions of using these netsh commands to install an IPv6 tunnel:

    netsh interface teredo set state disabled
    netsh interface ipv6 add v6v4tunnel interface=IP6Tunnel 207.181.***.*** 184.105.253.14
    netsh interface ipv6 add address IP6Tunnel 2001:470:1f10:111f::2
    netsh interface ipv6 add route ::/0 IP6Tunnel 2001:470:1f10:111f::1

    I get this result:

    C:\>netsh interface teredo set state disabled
    Ok.

    C:\>netsh interface ipv6 add v6v4tunnel interface=IP6Tunnel 207.181.229.138 184.105.253.14
    The function attempted to use a name that is reserved for use by another transaction.
    (I've used other names for the string - some in quotes - but with the same result.)

    C:\>netsh interface ipv6 add address IP6Tunnel 2001:470:1f10:111f::2
    The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
    (Which baffles me since this is the suggested syntax for this command.)

    C:\>netsh interface ipv6 add route ::/0 IP6Tunnel 2001:470:1f10:111f::1
    The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
    (Ditto here.)

    By all appearances the syntax is correct but I cannot reach a solution to get past the first error, either by using a different string name or putting it in quotes, nothing works. It's the speedbump that's killing the process.

    I should add that a network adapter named "Microsoft Direct Point-to-point Adapter" was created but no values can be assigned to it.

    I've used that as a string value but to no effect.

    Very frustrating, to say the least. Any ideas, folks?
