Syntax

Parameter Set: ByName
Set-Net6to4Configuration [[-State] <State> ] [[-AutoSharing] <State> ] [[-RelayName] <String> ] [[-RelayState] <State> ] [[-ResolutionIntervalSeconds] <UInt32> ] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-GPOSession <String> ] [-IPInterface <CimInstance> ] [-PassThru] [-PolicyStore <String> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: InputObject (cdxml)
Set-Net6to4Configuration [[-State] <State> ] [[-AutoSharing] <State> ] [[-RelayName] <String> ] [[-RelayState] <State> ] [[-ResolutionIntervalSeconds] <UInt32> ] -InputObject <CimInstance[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-Net6to4Configuration cmdlet sets the 6to4 configuration of both client computers and servers.

6to4 is an address assignment and router-to-router automatic tunneling technology that is described in RFC 3056: Connection of IPv6 Domains via IPv4 Clouds. 6to4 provides a globally-routable IPv6 address to a host with a public IPv4 address. This IPv6 address can be used to connect to other 6to4 hosts or the IPv6 Internet.

This cmdlet is similar in functionality to the netsh interface 6to4 context command.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-RelayState<State>

Configures the 6to4 relay state.
The acceptable values for this parameter are: 
-- Default: If the host has link-local only IPv6 connectivity and a public IPv4 address, then 6to4 is enabled. If there is no global IPv6 address present and no global IPv4 address present, then the host does not have a 6to4 interface. If there is no global IPv6 address present but there is a global IPv4 address present, then the host has a 6to4 interface.
-- Enabled: If there is a global IPv4 address present, then the host has a 6to4 interface. If there is no global IPv4 address present, then the host does not have a 6to4 interface.
-- Disabled: 6to4 is turned off and connectivity with 6to4 is not available.

If there is no global IPv6 address present and no global IPv4 address present, then the host does not have a 6to4 interface. If there is no global IPv6 address present but there is a global IPv4 address present, then the host has a 6to4 interface.
-- Enabled: If there is a global IPv4 address present, then the host has a 6to4 interface. If there is no global IPv4 address present, then the host does not have a 6to4 interface.
-- Disabled: 6to4 is turned off and connectivity with 6to4 is not available.

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see    about_CommonParameters.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

  • None

    This cmdlet accepts no input objects.


Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root\StandardCimv2\MSFT_Net6to4Configuration

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.
    When the Passthru parameter is specified, this cmdlet outputs a modified 6to4 configuration object.


Examples

Example 1: Modify the relay name on the persistent store

This command sets the relay name to my6to4relay.com for 6to4 connectivity on the local persistent store.


PS C:\> Set-Net6to4Configuration -RelayName "my6to4relay.com"
