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.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Modify the relay name on the persistent store

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

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

PARAMETERS

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None

Accepted values: Default, Automatic, Enabled, Disabled

Required: False
Position: 2
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Aliases: cf

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: False
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-GPOSession

Specifies the Group Policy session in which to store the 6to4 configuration information.

You can use this parameter with the NetGPO cmdlets to aggregate multiple operations performed on a Group Policy Object (GPO).

You cannot use this parameter with the PolicyStore parameter.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: ByName
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-IPInterface

Specifies the IP interface on which to set the 6to4 configuration.

Type: CimInstance
Parameter Sets: ByName
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-InputObject

Specifies the input object that is used in a pipeline command.

Type: CimInstance[]
Parameter Sets: InputObject (cdxml)
Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-PassThru

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-PolicyStore

Specifies the policy store that contains the configuration to set. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • PersistentStore
  • ActiveStore
  • GPO

To set the configuration of a GPO, specify the GPO name using the following format: Domain\GPOName

You cannot use this parameter with the GPOSession parameter.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: ByName
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-RelayName

Specifies a 6to4 relay name. If 6to4 connectivity is not available on the computer, the relay name setting has no effect.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: 3
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-RelayState

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.
  • Automatic.
Type: State
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 
Accepted values: Default, Automatic, Enabled, Disabled

Required: False
Position: 4
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ResolutionIntervalSeconds

Specifies the frequency for resolving the relay name. The 6to4 relay name resolution interval setting has no effect if there is no 6to4 connectivity available on the host.

Type: UInt32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: ResolutionInterval

Required: False
Position: 5
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-State

Specifies the state behavior of 6to4. 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.
  • Automatic.
Type: State
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 
Accepted values: Default, Automatic, Enabled, Disabled

Required: False
Position: 1
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ThrottleLimit

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.

Type: Int32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False

OUTPUTS

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.
